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. 'Status Update'

Hemerocallis ‘Status Update’ (Baxter, 2011)

Hemerocallis 'Status Update'’ is a 55% polymerous 2012 introduction.

H. 'Status Update'... (Baxter, 2011), Sdlg. #029, Diploid, 55% Polymerous, 7 ½" bloom, 27" tall, semi-evergreen. This soft pinkish-lavender flower has a nicely contrasting eye, always opens wonderfully, and is a joy to see in the garden each day. The color is clean and clear. During the 2011 season it was closer to 80% polymerous and during 2012 it was closer to 75% polymerous rather than its registered status of 55% that I recorded during the 2010 season. Also, the scape height has been 35" the past two seasons compared to its registered 27".

H. 'Status Update' is another great plant for hybridizers. It has fabulous pollen and is another one of my easy pod setters. I can't stress the importance of acquiring easy pod setting high polymerous daylilies for those working on advancing the development of polymerous daylilies.

Obviously, the name of the flower comes from the continuing Facebook fad of people giving "status updates" throughout the day. Yes, Daylilies of North Carolina is on Facebook, too.

Surprising, H. 'Status Update' is one of my more difficult flowers to photograph as you will notice below when viewing the multiple images and seeing the variations of color under different light conditions and times of the day..
