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 ‘Good Girls Do’ (Baxter, 2012)

Hemerocallis ‘Good Girls Do’ is a 90% polymerous 2013 introduction.

H. ‘Good Girls Do’ is a vivid and brilliant red drawing its vibrancy from its pollen parent H. ‘Moosa Pa Loosa.’ The form of this high percentage polymerous beauty is attributed to its pod parent H. ‘Redefining Genetics’ and paternal grandparent on both sides H. ‘Carolina Octopus.’ The slight chevron/eye is passed along from its fraternal grandparents on both sides which are H. ‘Chief Four Fingers’ and H. ‘Moana Gloria May.’

Genetically, H. ‘Good Girls Do’ is the pinnacle of a polymerous hybridizer’s fantasy turned reality. Not only does this cultivar have multi-generations of Baxter poly breeding, it also incorporates the outside influence of both the late Ned Roberts of spider and unusual form fame and Laurie Higgins from Australia.

Definitely a marvel for hybridizers as this cultivar is pollen and pod fertile, however, its value as a garden plant cannot be underestimated.  H. ‘Good Girls Do’ is hardy as a semi-evergreen and it is a vigorous grower. Its 7 ½ inch fragrant blooms sprout on nicely branched 30” scapes just as the peak season starts… continuing into the summer on rebloom scapes.  Typical of its lineage, the foliage is thin yielding blooms larger than you would expect.
