Another photo from our archives that’s no longer part of our design site since we phased out the photography section of our portfolio. This one’s a shot we took of a daylily back in Brooklyn.
When I was younger, we always (incorrectly) called these tiger lilies. As an instructor at a wilderness camp, I told our students that they were edible. Which is slightly confusing, because these more common daylilies—hemerocallis fulva (pictured above)—are edible and really pretty tasty. Whereas proper lilies like the Easter lily and actual tiger lilies can be toxic if ingested by animals and not so great for humans either. So…sorry for the confusion, kids! Hope you’re still alive!
Here’s a pretty interesting article from someone who’s way into edible daylilies for anyone interested.
