Edible Lilies (Hemerocallis spp.) Plant flowers to reduce the grocery bill? A strange thought to many of us, but again we can learn a lot from the Chinese. Popular delicacies in the Xian region of China, lilies are used in a wide range of dishes. The unopened flower buds are rich in iron. They are added to soups, stir-fries and stew. The flowers themselves add sweetness to vegetable dishes. Dried blossoms are high in Vitamin A and carbohydrates. Edible pods resembling green beans follow the flowers. Both work well in salads. In spring the young shoots and leaves are considered a delicacy and in the fall the crisp, nutty root bulbs can be eaten raw or cooked. Of course, you can also just let them grow and enjoy the visual benefits. Daylilies are carefree perennials that need little attention, are drought resistant and thrive in full or partial sunlight. A word of caution – not all daylilies can safely be considered edible. Our selections have a proven culinary history. Potted

Daylily : PEACH MAGNOLIA 1 gallon pot


Out of stock

For a stunning new variation on the daylily theme, try the new double-blossomed Peach Magnolia. Exotic, soft golden-apricot ruffles fill the centre of the immense 14cm (5½') blooms which sway above the vibrant green foliage on 80cm (32") stems. Peach Magnolia is just as resilient and adaptable as it's less glamorous daylily classmates. It is a mid to late season rebloomer that thrives in full sun to part shade.
