Alot of people don't know this but Daylily flowers are really tasty. Almost like iceberg lettuce. Very mild with a nice crunch. I nibble on these whenever I find them, but would probably be great in salads.

Don't confused with Tigerlily...they can make you sick.

I wish I'd kept the page as reference but I didn't. I read that the juice from the tubers of the day lilies is an antidote to arsenic poisoning. I probably didn't keep it because it wasn't a scientific site so I can't vouch for it and I'm not about to suck on a treated bee hive to test it.

MODERATOR: This is VERY good advice. Do not try something new unless you have VERY good information from a VERY reliable source!

Silly girl. You REALLY need to sit her down and repeat our mantra until she gets it:

ALL plants are medicinal, we just have not figured out what the use is yet.
