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 'Hugh Nourse’ (Baxter, 2011)

Hemerocallis ‘Hugh Nourse’ is a 2012 tetraploid introduction.

H. 'Hugh Nourse'... (Baxter, 2011), Sdlg. #HN, Tetraploid, 5 ½" to 6" bloom, 24" tall, semi-evergreen, reblooms. Simply my finest tetraploid introduction to date. The vibrancy and intensity of the colors in this flower explode across the entire garden and you can actually feel the electrical charge of this daylily. The base color is an intense orange backlit with yellow, and the large splashy red eye is infused with a slight spectrum of underlying tones that make this daylily scream. The eye color continues to wrap the petal edges. Named to honor one of the most brilliant people that I have ever known. This daylily is a very easy pod setter, has great pollen, and reblooms reliably. Parentage is H. 'Adorable Tiger' × H. 'Cajun Christmas'

H. 'Hugh Nourse' is a true "extended blooming" daylily. It starts in the early season and its first set of rebloom scapes come up immediately. This first set of rebloom scapes start blooming before the first set finishes giving you an incredibly long bloom season.

Hybridizers love H. 'Hugh Nourse' for its incredible ability to easily set pods, even in high temperature. Overall, this plant is simply one of the finest daylilies that I grow.
