Hemerocallis 'Siloam Double Classic'

Overall Description

Siloam Double Classic Daylily is, as the name suggests, a double blooming daylily. The color of this variety is absolutely stunning - soft peaches & pinks all mixed & swirled together gives an almost coral colored overall appearance that is virtually unmatched in any other daylily variety that we've seen. Blooms average about 5" in diameter, and begin to appear in mid season. The peak blooming time of this variety does last a bit longer than some other typical daylilies................but Siloam Dbl Classic is not known to be much of a re-bloomer at all. You might get lucky and see a few additional blooms here & there if you stay on top of the removal of old expired scapes as soon as they're done blooming.

Foliage is completely dormant in all climates during the winter months. We actually suggest trimming, or "mowing" the foliage back to a height of about 3 or 4 inches at the end of the fall season. This way, the foliage can have a fresh, new start when spring rolls around, and will look its absolute best all season long. Very low maintenance - easy to grow. Siloam Dbl Classic has extremely bright, vivid colors held against grasslike foliage that is a nice dark green.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
