Day Lily (Hemerocallis sp.)


Day Lilies are all members of the genus Hemerocallis. They all bear large, spectacular flowers that last only a day each. Fortunately, each plant bears quite a few flowers.

Besides their beauty and variety, Day Lilies have another thing going for them – you can eat them.

Yes, every part is edible! Tubers, leaves, flowers – the whole thing.

I will admit though that my favourite part is the stamen. They are long, crispy and kind of sweet. I just pinch one or two off every time I pass and crunch down on them happily.

Enjoy them for many reasons!
