Looking for known edible day lilies and tiger lilies
« on: January 25, 2019, 07:57:33 PM »
Want to add to my perennial hardy edible plants collection some edible types of day lily and tiger lily. Want known safe edible types as not all day lilies and tiger lilies are edible and or other plants called lilies.

Thanks! DG
Trying to grow it all!

Buy the bulbs at the Asian markets and grow them from scales. Make sure they taste good first though. I've purchased a "Japanese" lily bulb and it was huge and terrible. It's chalky starchy rather than the sweet crispy of the ones from China.
