As their name implies, each daylily bloom only lasts for one day. Luckily for us, the daylily plant will give life to several flowers throughout the course of what is usually a number of weeks….Dried daylilies are often used in hot and sour soup. See the recipe here.
Daylilies are edible and actually quite tasty. You can pluck the fresh flower blooms and stuff them with herbed cheese, chicken salad, or a light dip. They’re great with champagne too!
