To use the Flower Key, your first stop is to the South Span of Wyrm’s Crossing Waypoint. Directly across the street from the Waypoint is Fraygo’s Flophouse. If you haven’t completed “The Pale Elf” yet, you can find the Vampire Spawn that Astarion wanted to search for and question about Cazador’s ritual here as well.

Find the Large Wardrobe

Once inside, go upstairs and to the room with beds and chests. Use the ladder on the wall to go up another level. You can see that there’s another room on this level, but there’s no door inside to enter it. However, interacting with the large wardrobe in the hall uses the Flower Key and lets you into the secret room.

In this room, you’ll find temple plans, a bloodied note, and a body under the bed. These can be used to prove that the refugees weren’t behind the murder at the Open Hand Temple. After gathering the evidence, take it to the lead investigator to progress the quest “Investigate the Murders.”

That covers what to do with the Strange Flower Key in Baldur’s Gate 3. If you want to enter the secret room without it, climb onto the balcony and lockpick the door from outside.
