Visit Roma Street Parklands in Brisbane to see our stunning daylilies
In July 2009, the Roma Street Parklands ordered 5 each of 35 of our more expensive daylilies for their gardens. So I popped in last week to see how they were doing and I was absolutely amazed at the spectacular display!

As you will see in the photos they were planted in groups of 5 amongst many other perennials and they have clumped up really well in a short time. If you will be in Brisbane during November I recommend you try to visit the parklands to see the daylilies whilst at their peak. I know you’ll also be very impressed with all the sculptures, ponds, waterfalls, lakes, fountains and other wonderful landscaping features there.

Eat My Daylilies ... you’ve got to be joking!
No, I’m not. If there was a famine I’m sure you wouldn’t mind eating them, would you?! Have a look at this photo and tell me what part you don’t think could be eaten. There are quite a few of you who have been growing daylilies for a long time now so you must have lots of plants spread around your  garden. Why not treat them as a potential food source? They are highly nutritious!

Our “garden” at the moment consists of lots of annuals, herbs, perennials and roses all growing in containers and pots spread along a large north-facing verandah (see main picture on next page). When my daylilies in the tubs finish flowering I cut stems from the farm with lots of buds on them and push them into the tubs, and this is where I pick buds or spent flowers for stir fries or salads. This morning I put two of yesterdays spent flowers in my fruit smoothie and have not suffered any ill effects yet! A word of caution... the Dining On Daylilies article mentions to just eat a few to start off so that your system can get used to them.
