Flowers to Plant

I have several lists in the back of my planner: restaurants I want to try, books I want to read, etc. Now I have a list of flowers/herbs I want to plant in our new back yard!
  • echinacea
  • Shasta daisies
  • gladiolus
  • peonies
  • dahlias
  • hollyhocks
  • day lilies
  • chocolate daisies
  • basil
  • rosemary
Now I just need to find out how many of these are drought tolerant and appropriate for quasi-xeriscaping. We want to keep our water usage low but still have an attractive yard.
