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. 'Trail Runner'

Hemerocallis ‘Trail Runner’ (Baxter, 2013)

Hemerocallis ‘Trail Runner’ is a 2014 tetraploid introduction.

H. 'Trail Runner' is an incredibly beautiful plant. I would describe its base color as very light cream coming close towards white. It has an eye and edge of rich and vibrant lavender. At times it can also have a distinct second inner edge of a brilliant magenta, and the eye can also be edged in this brilliant magenta. Examine the pictures below (click on them for higher resolution viewing) and you will see the many faces of this flower. The pictures were taken in 2012 and 2013. H. 'Trail Runner' begins blooming in the early part of the daylily bloom season and for the past two years it has had three sets of rebloom scapes after its initial bloom scape. The lavender eye and edge can vary in tone during the season based on temperature, and the time season of bloom, the camera can render tonal variances if pictures are take with cloud cover or in full sunshine. It is truly amazing that all the pictures below are of the same cultivar.

H. 'Trail Runner' has registered bloom size of 4¾", however 5" are also very common on top 31" scapes that bloom nicely above the foliage. This tetraploid is semi-evergreen and is also fragrant. Hybridizers will bask in the knowledge that the flower very pollen fertile and also a very easy pod setter.

I am very excited to off H. 'Trail Runner' and it clear and clean colors. It will be a star in your garden just as it is in mine. I named this flower after my passion of running trails in the woods.
