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.

Hemerocallis ‘Secret Agent Babe’ (Baxter, 2006)

Hemerocallis ‘Secret Agent Babe’ is a high percentage polymerous 2006 introduction.

H. 'Secret Agent Babe'... (Baxter, 2006), Seedling #B05-350, Diploid, 7½", 28". Pinched crispate unusual form with top-notch pedigree (H. 'Carolina Octopus' × H. 'Carolina Flying Poly Possum'). I registered the flower as 75% polymerous, however, during the 2011 & 2012 bloom seasons it was 100% polymerous.

When I relocated the garden in the spring of 2007, I thought I had lost H. 'Secret Agent Babe'. I was so disappointed until I rediscovered it during the 2011 bloom season in a bed of plants that had lost their tags. Now, in the fall of 2012 and six years after official introduction, I feel that it is being introduced again for the first time.

The narrowness of petal is from the pod parent H. 'Carolina Octopus'. The pronounced mid-rib creating the crispation and slightly red eye is from the pollen parent H. 'Carolina Flying Poly Possum'. The red eye can be very faint at times but is never heavily pronounced. The base color is a very clean yellow and actually comes from both parents despite the fact that the "Octopus" is red. The yellow flower H. 'Almost Paradise' is the pollen parent of the "Octopus".

H. 'Secret Agent Babe' is mid-season bloomer, repeats, and is dormant. Definitely a plant to have in your arsenal if you are breeding for polymerous daylilies.
