SiloamDaylilies.com is a web site devoted to showcasing and preserving the many cultivars of daylilies created by Pauline Henry of Siloam Springs, Arkansas and to honor her work. Pauline Henry passed away Sept. 20, 2000, at the age of 92.
The city of Siloam Springs has dedicated a memorial garden to honor her and her husband Ralph. The garden has over 125 Siloam daylilies. The garden is maintained by the Benton County Master Gardeners in conjunction with the city.
Many companies and individuals have contributed their time and resources to this memorial garden. Dawn Denton, when she worked for the city, was instrumental in getting the memorial garden setup. When she left the employment of the city she stayed involved and as a Benton County Master Gardener saw to it that this garden became a sanctioned project of the Master Gardeners.
As you can discern from the picture the garden is not real large and is situated by the side of Sager Creek and consisted of two sections. A long banana shaped area and a circle area.
The circle area has all 14 of Pauline Henry's highest award winning daylilies. The Forum showcases all of the Siloam Daylilies in the garden as well as all of the daylilies that Pauline and Ralph registered. The 14 award winners are labeled as In the Circle garden.
The banana area contains many daylilies, peonies, daffodils and irises that came from Pauline Henry's home garden. (Note: The daylily picture in the heading of this website is an unknown cultivar that came from her garden) It is the intent of the Master Gardeners to have this area reflect Mrs. Henry's original garden and the flowers that she grew.
You can search The American Hemerocallis Society, Inc. cultivar database for all the daylilies registered by Pauline Henry and the awards that they won. For your convenience we have downloaded this information and added pictures. This information is on the Forum.
