Siloam Fairy Tale is pretty enough, grows well like most of the Siloams I have. I have quite a few day lilies now and this one does not really stand out for me, will probably leave my garden this year.

Siloam Fairy Tale has always been a good grower for me. However in my new garden, the voles have followed the mole tunnels and have eaten all the tuberous parts of the root systems of many of the Daylilies. I have had to dig up the remains and pot them up in one and two gallon size thick black plastic pots, with a wire mesh inside or outside of the pot, to plant them, plunged into the soil up to the pot collar. Some of them are now recovering nicely. I'm not sure how much growth they will have, however, with this constrained protection.
