Edible flower book suggestions and eating day lilies.
So, I don't guess day lilies are actually herbs, but, I was just wondering how many of you have eaten day lily flowers? I get so nervous about eating an unfamiliar plant. Is it ok to eat ANY kind of day lily? Do any of you know of a good book that could help me out in this department? Also, at what point do you pick the buds? Still closed, just beginning to open, etc.?
The kind I have are about 40 years old. So, I guess, they are the traditional true blue d.l. They are a pale orange, single petals. They came from my mom, so they have been drenched in chemicals, I'm sure... She loves chemicals! I've had them about two years with no chemicals.
Thanks for any input you may have.
