A Drought-Tolerant GardenA Drought-Tolerant Garden
By SongofJoy on February 10, 2012

The year 2011 was a violent weather year in the US, with at least 12 weather-related disasters exceeding a billion dollars in damage. Some say it was Earth's most extreme weather year since 1816. Much of the country suffered from record heat and drought . . . and so did the yards and gardens.

This is a great reblooming daylily that blooms almost continuously from early summer through fall and is semi-evergreen here in TN.

Blooms all summer long and the leaves are evergreen/semi-evergreen.

Nice pale yellow color. Doesn't seem bothered by heat, humidity or drought.

I bought Going Bananas based on the claim that it rebloomed and rebloomed all summer. Unfortunately that has not been the case in my garden. Going Bananas has never rebloomed for me. Worse yet, the flowers have very little substance so any rain showers shred the flowers to bits.

What a blooming machine! It's bloomed all of April and May and is still blooming in June 2018. I love the creped petals and cheery clear yellow. It looks a lot like my 'Brocade Gown,' which is a slightly lighter yellow. I got it Spring 2017 in a pkg. of 15 "Rebloomers" from Gilbert Wild & Son.
