    I purchased Going Bananas in bloom in a pot in the summer of 2020 because of its potential for rebloom. It did not bloom in 2021, so I cannot comment on its long-term performance. Based on the comments of others, I am hopeful for its recovery in 2022.
  • Posted by Newyorkrita (North Shore, Long Island, NY ) on Sep 23, 2013 1:31 PM concerning plant:
    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.

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

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

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

    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.
