Hemerocallis fulva var rosea
9th July 2011
The pink flowered form of H.fulva discovered in Kuling, China by Dr A.N.Steward. He sent three plants to
Dr Arlow Stout who described and named it in 1930.
A couple of clones have been named and it is the original source of pink colour in all the early hybrids.
H.fulva can be very vigorous and spread rather widely, but I had to try this when I saw it for sale
recently. I will dig it out if it becomes a pest, but I have seen it in a few other gardens recently where
it has been well behaved.
