I had this cultivar about 3 years ago. It bloomed nicely for me the year it went in the ground (6 fans). It did not survive it's first winter here for me. Wanted to try it again but have not gone and looked for it as of yet. Unsure what went wrong as the cultivars planted to the left and right of it (also planted at same time) have thrived.

Hi Jon and robertduval....this thread caught my eye, because ever since I discovered and fell in love with DLs, the ones that have done so well in my raised beds, zone 6 with hard northern winds, are Siloams. They are gorgeous, these flowers, their form, their substance. First was S. bye lo. Have had it for 9 or 10 years. Love this plant, can hardly stand to part with its divisions, the flowers are so beautiful.
Also what continues to do well, and even one year started to rebloom late in the season, was S. doodle bug. Also, S. royal prince, stunning! and Siloam tiny tim is my first encounter with a DL with a blue eye, which is going to get me in trouble, actually, because I will now have to have many more DLs that have a blue anything ...I could have screamed, the first time I saw a DL with a blue eye. Anyway, thanks, your thread is great!

Just last week dug up Siloam Baby Talk and gave it to 3 people at work. Not because it didn't perform well, I just wanted to make room for some different daylilies.

SBT did well in my garden, even with a tree root about the size of my wrist growing right beside it. It multiplied fast and the blooms were almost always perfect. I would compare it to Siloam Double Classic as far as performance, but they both bloom down in the foliage somewhat, so that is why I decided to let it go.

This is a great performer in my garden. I have had it 4 years growing at the front of a bed. It produces lots of flowers and is very drought tolerant. I am happy to have it.
