Hemerocallis fulva

Nota de alcance (en)

Daylilies get their name from the fact that each large colorful bloom on the stalk lasts only one day. These plants are native to Asia and have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. The roots and young shoots were given as a pain reliever and as a remedy for edema, difficult urination, mastitis, breast cancer, and other ailments. While the plant is edible, the roots and shoots should not be consumed in large amounts over a long time.
Daylilies are toxic when eaten by cats and cows, due to a neurotoxin causing paralysis and blindness.
