A native of China that was named by Stout in 1930, the various clones of 'Rosea' average 36-48" tall with 4-5" blooms. All bloom EM and are DOR. Today's modern hybrids owe their pink coloration to this species. One clone, PASTEL ROSE, does not have a dark eye and was a coveted commodity in the early days of daylily hybridizing.
