Colorful Nature - Tiger Liliy after a morning rain

(Lilium Lancifolium) The TIGER LILY is often grown in the flower garden but in the Orient it is cultivated for its edible bulb. In fact when grown as a root crop the Chinese actually pick off the flower buds to stimulate the production of larger bulbs. All other members of this genus also produce edible bulbs, though these can often have a bitter flavour.

When baked, lily bulbs taste rather like potatoes. However the petals are also very good in a garden salad - good taste and adds conversational color.
