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. 'Time To Play'

Hemerocallis ‘Time To Play’ (Baxter, 2012)

Hemerocallis ‘Time To Play’ is a 60% polymerous 2013 introduction.

H. 'Time To Play' is a semi-evergreen cultivar and registered as an early season opener. It is fragrant and the 5 inch diploid blooms sit atop 20 inch scapes.

H. 'Time To Play' is offered as part of my continuing effort to encourage the development of polymerous daylilies by existing and new hybridizers. Priced very affordably, H. 'Time To Play' has wonderful genetics as it is the progeny of H. 'Grapefruit Guts' × H. 'Pancake Platypus'. Additionally, this flower is an extremely easy pod setter and makes huge pods that are full of seeds. Identifying high percentage polymerous daylilies that have recognized poly genetics and have the ability to set pods readily is the foundation of a good hybridizing program. Without the ability to set seeds, the development of polymerous daylilies will grind to a halt. In this spirit, I offer H. 'Time To Play' and H. 'Moments That Linger' as very inexpensive new introductions this year.

In my own hybridizing I plan many specific crosses with a vision of what will result. However, the frustration of making the "perfect cross" and then not producing a pod is infuriating as some plants are just more relunctant than others. In my arsenal, I maintain plants such as H. 'Time To Play' and H. 'Moments That Linger' because I know they will easily set pods when I whip them heavily with my best poly pollen. A two step approach like this ensures a successful hybridizing season and keeps my blood pressure where it needs to be.
