My poor little Siloam Bo got caught in a planting frenzy in the fall of 2015 when I was trying to get all the potted-up Dayliles and Iris in the ground quickly. It was planted in a shady spot under a Pecan tree when I ran out of quality garden space. I had purchased Peep in August of 2015 at the Madison Area Daylily most of my purchased ones. It didn't bloom in 2016 and was pretty weak looking. It did bloom some this June but not much. I moved it to a prime location the beginning of this September and it has made quite a recovery from looking half dead to a robust plant (for its size) with increases. This has proven to me how important location in the garden is and I need to pay more attention to it. It won't be till next June that I can give a true report on Peep but I can say that Siloam Bo Peep can take abuse and bounce back quickly. Ann

Most of the Siloams I have had are good plants, and this is no exception. I tend to like larger flowers, this is a smaller plant & flower, but it does bloom well. I have kept it because of that.

I've enjoyed Siloam Bo Peep in my gardens for 21 years. It is a reliable bloomer and blossoms are always displayed well. I like Pauline Henry's series of smaller blossoms, and have collected quite a few. Here are two more images.

Siloam Bo Peep is a prolific bloomer here in the subtropics starting flowering in the last month of spring. It is registered as dormant but it is not deciduous or dormant here. As a clump, it stands out in the garden as a border plant, increases well and is fairly rust resistant.
