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 ‘Runner Chick’ (Baxter, 2012)

Hemerocallis ‘Runner Chick’ is a tetraploid 2013 introduction.

H. 'Runner Chick' has a 5 ½" flower that is purple-lavender with a deeper bluish-purple eye. The edge of the eye and the edge of the petals are bordered by a darker tone of the purple-lavender base color. The petals are veined but the veining is much more distinct in the eye of the flower.

The blooms of H. 'Runner Chick' have a pleasant fragrance. Flower scapes are 30" tall on these hardy semi-evergreen plants. Blooms begin to open near peak season and I registered H. 'Runner Chick' as mid-late season cultivar.

For a tetraploid, H. 'Runner Chick' is a remarkably easy pod setter. For the 2012 bloom season it was one of the few tetraploids that set pods during the 10 day heat wave where temperatures were over 100° every day. In addition to this great quality that hybridizers seek, H. 'Runner Chick' was a huge favorite of garden visitors. Beautiful clear colors are a trademark of this new daylily variety!
