I would certainly concur with all of Jane's points differentiating L.
autumnale and roseum.  I have never heard of suggestions that they are
anything other than discrete and distinct species.  In my hands L. roseum is
very slow to increase and more prone to rot.  I have never tried it outside
and doubt it would 'do' at all.  L. autumnale does OK outdoors here but
hates repeated freeze-thaws and ice on the leaves.
