Just curious if anybody has had any luck growing this in Zone 4.

I added 'Destined to See' to my zone 3 gardens three summers ago and I love this daylily. The blooms are in the medium range (nearly the stretch of my open hand), on sturdy scapes (about the 2-foot height noted) ... possibly just a bit under. It flowers well in midseason here, despite the zone 5 listing.

The plant has filled out, begun to multiply - and like so many others here, it has displayed the occasional polymerous bloom. We do have very snowy winters, which offers excellent insulation, but I would suggest 'Destined to See' for other cold-climate gardeners. It's beautiful.
