It is found across China, in Europe in N.E. Italy and Slovenia and is one of the first daylilies used for breeding new daylily cultivars.[1]

Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus grows in big, spreading clumps, and its leaves grow to 75 cm (30 in) long. Its scapes each bear from 3 through 9 sweetly fragrant, lemon-yellow flowers.[1]
