Can anyone tell me if Lilium lancifloium is the tiger lily whose buds are used in Chinese cuisine? And has anyone tried to grow and prepare their own?

RE: edible tiger lillies?

It's the buds of Hemerocallis fulva, the common orange daylily (also called ditch lily, also called tiger lily although it is not a true lily) that are used for cooking. Very tasty, they are. Used to live near a Chinese restaurant that used them in the hot and sour soup.
