Details
Hemerocallis minor, also known as Dwarf day lily, Grassleaf Lily, is an herbaceous perennial native to Japan, China, Russia, Korea and Mongolia. Hemerocallis minor grows up to 50 cm high. It has beautiful scentless yellow flowers that bloom from May to June. The plant is easy to grow and and quick to multiply. It is pollinated by insects. The daylily prefers full sun to part shade and well-drained soils. Flowers, leaves and root are edible. Leaves and young shoots can be cooked. However, they must be consumed when very young or else they become fibrous. Flowers and flower buds can be eaten raw or cooked. The flowers are a traditional food in China where they are steamed and then dried. The flowers can be dried and used as a relish or a thickener in soups etc. The flower buds contain about 43mg vitamin C per 100g, 983 IU vitamin A and 3.1% protein. Some flowers are poisonous if not cooked. Some are only edible while in bud. Identify and correctly prepare all flowers before eating. The root can be eaten raw or cooked. Large quantities of the leaves are said to be hallucinogenic. Blanching the leaves removes this hallucinatory component (the report stating this fact does not make clear what it means by blanching, it could be excluding light from the growing shoots or immersing in boiling water.) Hardiness zone: 4-8
