Datefield not showing calendar

I have a custom form and the calendar for the Datefield isn't showing.

DateField::create('Custom5_StartDate', 'Start Date:')->setConfig('showcalendar', true)

I didn't see anything in the documentation saying to do anything beyond the code I have above. Having said that, I assume it needs jQueryUI for the calendar like Userforms, but I don't see those assets being loaded.
