Abstract: Some species of Hemerocallis were cultivated in the campus of Futan University, including the evergreen H. aurantiaca Baker. The original plant of H. aurantiaca was introduced from Zhangzhou, southeastern Fukien Province. The karyotype formula of H. aurantiaca is 2n=33=12m+9sm+3st+3T+6m(sat). The karyotype differs from those of summer-green or evergreen H. fulva (k(2n)=33=3M+21m+6sm +3T) and H. fulva var. kwanso (K(2n)=33=3M+l8m+6sm+3st+3T). The vouchers are kept in FUS.

Key words: Hemerocallis fulva, H.fulva var.kwanso, Haurantiaca, Karyotype
