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. 'Moments That Linger'

Hemerocallis ‘Moments That Linger’ (Baxter, 2012)

Hemerocallis ‘Moments That Linger’ is a 60% polymerous 2013 introduction.

H. 'Moments That Linger' falls into that color category of the true type reds without muddy undertones. I particularly like this flower as it seems to behave differently, yet wonderfully, depending on how much water it gets. I registered it as 6 ½ inches but after heavy rains it can go beyond 7 ½ and take on a more elongated appearance on 30 inch tall scapes.

At 60% it is not one of my highest percentage polymerous introductions but it has a remarkable ability to set pods easily and I feel this is an important plant for those hybridizers that need to increase their seed production. The parentage is unknown on this cultivar but I believe it does involve H. 'Carolina Octopus' either directly or one generation removed, however, I have not idea who the full-form flower was that shared the cross. I also feel that H. 'Moments That Linger' is an excellent plant to cross with both spidery type polymerous daylilies as well as full forms across all color ranges.

This diploid beauty is semi-evergreen and is in full bloom for the peak daylily season.
