H. 'Reaching New Heights' a 2012 introduction by Bobby Baxter

H. 'Secret Agent Babe'

H. 'Secret Agent Babe' is nearly 100% polymerous with 7½" blooms. In the picture above the blooms are 9 inches!! Imagine how big that beast is that is hovering over all the "babes!" Big just keeps getting bigger at Daylilies of North Carolina where size matters, too!

Daylilies of North Carolina is the leading hybridizing garden on the planet for the advanced development of the polymerous form of Hemerocallis. We continue to march forward with unequaled diversity of size, color, form, substance, rebloom, and all desired characteristics of polymerous daylilies!!

In addition to leading the Polymerous Revolution, our tetraploid breeding continues reaching new heights with incredible clarity of color, vibrance, and form. We are proud of our daylilies and strive to create flowers worthy of your garden.

Why multiple images of our flowers?

Redefining Genetics

At Daylilies of North Carolina we are endeavoring to show multiple pictures of each flower on "individual cultivar pages." The picture above shows the cultivar page for H. 'Redefining Genetics' with 18 different images so that you can see the flower under different lighting, blooming, and environmental conditions. We do not want to post one "cover girl" picture that can misrepresent our flowers.

This website is a continuous work in progress and we started the individual cultivar pages with our own introductions. Please be patient as we continue the process by adding galleries of all the flowers growing at Daylilies of North Carolina.


H. 'Fractured Symmetry'

Fractured Symmetry
Hemerocallis ‘Fractured Symmetry’ (Baxter, 2012)

Hemerocallis ‘Fractured Symmetry’ is a 75% polymerous 2013 introduction.

H. 'Fractured Symmetry' has a commanding presence in the garden standing 43 inches tall with registered blooms of 9 inches, though at times, they are even larger. A trait that I love about this huge twisted crispate Unusual Form is that there is no symmetry between blooms -- each bloom has its own personality and does its own thing providing wonderful diversity of blooms.

Deeply fragrant with a semi-evergreen nature the flowers are generally a mauve salmon blend that sometimes can lean a little on the pinkish side. The large muted purple eye provides wonderful contrast of the base color and highlights the large and deep chartreuse throat.

H. 'Fractured Symmetry' begins its blooms at the peak of the season so I registered it as a mid-season late bloomer with an adequate bud count to be a great season extender.

Hybridizers will find H. 'Fractured Symmetry' a bit difficult to work with as it has that bright yellow pollen and proved to be a difficult pod setter in the season of 2012 (of course we did have a major heat wave with 10 consecutive days over 100° during its bloom). However, if you like your polymerous daylilies huge and tall then the extra effort of working with H. 'Fractured Symmetry' will be worth it. Just growing this beast of a poly is pure enjoyment, too.

Genetically, H. 'Fractured Symmetry' should have strong pollen and be a great pod setter because both its parents are strong in these categories. Perhaps this is just that generation that misses things. My 2012 introduction H. 'In Celebration of Life' is the pod parent and the pollen parent is the incredible H. 'Carolina Octopus.' Next season I plan to cross it back and forth with its pod parent.

Introduced in limited supply, H. 'Fractured Symmetry' will retain its value and demand for years to come.
