|Key to My Heart is slow to increase here in southern NH. Other than slow to increase, it's a fantastic daylily with beautiful bloom.|

|I grew KEY TO MY HEART for many years. I loved this plant. It increased well in my Zone 5 garden. I decided to get rid of it, because the outer petals would frequently "canoe". I wanted the blooms to lay flat and they would not. I would manipulate the bloom to be wide open to only find the outer edges to curl up. I suspect that the petals were not as thick at the edges and thus they curled. I loved the color and the hardiness. I would still grow it not for the canoeing.

|I still grow KTMH it grows well here, the coloring is lovely. I do agree with David about the canoeing which is a flaw IMHO. Perhaps this is not an issue in more southern climates.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!

I just received KTMH as a bonus plant and was adding it to my plant list today when I saw this thread! I was hoping to see what others thought of it as it's definitely a pretty one.
I wouldn't care for canoeing either so I hope it lays flat in 7b.
