Heartbeat of Heaven is a great plant. I have been growing it for 5 years in my zone 8 garden. I find that it is a bit shorter than the 32" it is registered as and the bud count is typically around 16.

It is fertile both ways and is a great parent. 68 flowers have been registered with it as a parent, with many more sure to follow.

I would recommend this flower.

Heartbeat of Heaven is a beautiful Daylily and performs wonderfully in zone 6b, southern Kentucky. It is a medium grower and does not increase quickly but blooms consistently and is very easy to set pods on.

I have had Heartbeat of Heaven for 5 years and love it!!!! It doesn't increase very fast but blooms for a long time. I have never actually counted buds but I would bet it has over 20 per scape. Scapes grow to their 32" height here. The first 2 years I had it, I could not set any pods and even the pollen didn't work. Once it settled in I have set many pods on it. Last summer it did rebloom for me. The flowers never fade here and have great substance. Can't say enough positive about this plant!!!!

I have had 'Heartbeat of Heaven' for 4 years and like it very much. I have found its color can vary quite a bit (as you can see from the several pictures from different growers here on this forum), but that is one of the things I like about it!

I have not kept any record of branching, bud count, etc. but as I recall it blooms for quite a long time.
I took above photo because it showed a bloom with more yellow than usual and just looked so pretty!
