Daylily seed pods, I think they taste better than the green beans they are said to taste like, I have not tried the flowers yet.

Feijoa flowers are said to be lovely. I've tried raw fuchsia flowers and I wouldn't bother unless you can process them first as they were all bitter.

The flowers from Chive Plants are terrific in salads. Just break up the flower and sprinkle over the top of the salad.

Day Lilly flowers are very good. They have a buttery taste and do very well in salads.

the different colors of Day Lilly flowers have a different taste.

Try them all. :)

I need to check the link that was posted above. But I have a question:

Can you eat tiger lilly flowers?

Careful of the Day Lilly cultivars. I have heard that not all of them have retained the edibility of the original naturalized ones in the wild.
