    Pygmy sundews as a whole generally don't go dormant so long as the soil is kept sufficiently moist. There are generally a few that always go dormant anyway, and it can be very difficult to revive them but my roseana tend to do so readily. And pygmies are the only ones I can think of that do have summer dormant "hibernacula;" tuberous dews die back to underground tubers, South African species die to the roots (I believe species like hilaris and ericgreenii etc. included), and others simply stall growth until conditions become favorable again.

    Petiolaris sundews also act like pygmy sundews in extreme draught, leaves shrivel and hairs are produced to protect the bud. D. hilaris is hard to find information on, mine in summer have produced a tight bud that starts to regrow when the summer heat(some years we don't have any) cools off and they are kept wetter again,

    Forgot about the petiolaris group, yeah those guys are funky too (yet to grow them personally though); oh, and the word you're looking for is drought, draught is the old English spelling for draft

    I wonder if D. hilaris kind of depends on the severity of conditions; some people I have heard it forms dormant buds for, while for a few others it dies back like cistiflora and its relatives.

    I thought D. hilaris was a year-round sundew. Does it die back only if conditions are too hot and/or dry, or does it need a dromancy?

    Wrong, it's the correct spelling of draught AND a typo for drought.

    So, in other words, it can be spelled both ways.

    Its the difference between British and American spelling, I think we use draft for involuntary military call up:-) but yeah I meant drought, as for d.hilaris , I have grown it year round and in hot years it has gone into a bud. I have seen an Italian grower flower the plant and his plants experienced a summer dormancy as in a tight bud, haven't seen anyone else flower the plant. If it dies back to the roots I'm not sure if it would have the same explosive growth cistiflora and the like have, so maybe not able to grow enough to flower? If so wouldn't that point towards dying back to the roots as pure survival and not the preferred growth habit? D.regia can be grown year round but without a winter dormancy apparently won't flower

    It can Curtis

    Draught is the correct English spelling.
    Draft is American.

    Corky in compulsory enlistment. The American is Draft. The English term would be Conscription.
