I do not have this daylily, however, this is a good example of how I rely on the "plant database" to see a variety of pictures of a daylily before I purchase. I look at the Heavenly Curls pictures (in the data base) and know that I would be happy with this one because I like all the possibilities of what I may see in my garden in zone 5a. I would be happy if it were yellow, near white, or even a little hint of pink.

I have only had Heavenly Curls for 2 years and so far it has been pretty slow in establishing itself, as with most Gossards I have purchased. The first year I only had about 4 flowers on it. This past summer was a bit better so I am anticipating that this plant takes a few years to settle in. Sometimes the third year is a charm. I am anxious to see how it does this summer. So far it has now reached its registered stats. Hopefully once it settles in it does.

I ordered this sometime around 2004 from Jamie and have divided it a few times since then. It has made a big clump and is vigorous here. The quality I most admire other than the vigor is the wonderful form that each bloom exhibits. The bloom is the epitome of what an unusual form should be - no two blooms are exactly the same. Great substance, I don't remember bud count as being anything remarkably good or remarkably bad, so average bud count, but it puts on a show in clump form! Color does show a lot of yellow here, but it is very appealing - this one's quite photogenic!
