    I've owned Siloam Virginia Henson since at least 2008. Neglected, it never bloomed for me. For the past year I have been regularly watering and fertilizing my daylilies. SVH has responded to this treatment and has bloomed for the first time this year! It bloomed midseason for me. I have SVH planted on a slope for erosion control. It needs more attention than many of my other daylilies, so I'd recommend planting it somewhere more accessible.

    I'm editing this because I think it did bloom but I never noticed it since it is very short and was among the last bloomers for me for several years. I think the first few years it bloomed later (due to no fertilizer) so I had stopped going to the corner of the garden where it is planted by the time it started to bloom. Since I wrote this comment it has bloomed reliably for me starting in midseason but extending into late season. I now have planted a very late daylily in the same area so I'm more aware of when it blooms. I've also thinned some daylilies next to it to make it more noticeable and give it more sunlight. But I really should move it closer to the front of the border.
