Edible Daylily. Introduced in 1957, and named after a Jack London novel, this edible daylily bears deep orange lily-like flowers, each one lasting a day, then replaced the next day with many more, all through the summer. It is very hardy and ideal for the colder British climate. Best in a sunny position, in normal garden soil. Height and spread 60 - 75 cm. Herbaceous perennial.
Harvest the shoots in spring and use in stir fries or pasta. Use the tubers in winter. The flower buds can be steamed or stir-fried, and the flowers can be used in salads or dried in miso soups. Lift and divide every three years to maintain flowering. Priced for: 1 litre pot
