Patrina species seem to function as alternate hosts for a daylily rust identified in 2000 in Georgia and intercepted in 20 other states' nurseries. At worst, it is lethal. It has been common in Asia and Asian daylilies seem more resistant than American daylilies. A website for information in addition to that given below is http://www.ars.usda.gov/is/AR/archive/nov02/lilies1102.htm
