    Day lilies!
    So few people eat them even thought they seem to be everywhere!

    Lots of small flowers as well, better raw in salads mostly.

    Also, Black locust blossoms... ahhhh.

    I just read that the tubers of Day Lilies are edible; they taste like and look like fingerling potatoes.

    Nuttier than potatoes IMO.
    Who knows the nutritional content... but tasty!

    In TN, where I'm from, the standard orange day lily multiplies like wildfire in places where it's been planted.
    We used to have lots near the house for flowers, and those needed to be thinned sometimes... and in other places around old home sites where it gets naturalized we'd get permission to dig clumps from the owner.

    The old fashioned orange multiply the fastest too if you want to get good ones for munching on for planting on your own property. The fancy hybrids, not so much... showy flowers, slower growth.
    Also, BONUS: the old fashioned ones can often be dug for free and added to your own yard.

    I look at foliage and wonder if it's edible but finally have seen the light and am done with eating weeds I mean vegetation.

    Just don't dig them if the Death Camus is nearby.

    I eat daylily buds regularly. Mostly I saute them in loads of butter and eat them with scrambled eggs. They are also quite good pickled with pink peppercorns and served with charcuterie.

    I like dandelion. Pansies taste like butter.

    Rose petals are yummy in a fruit salad. Only from the garden though (or someone elses!)

    Fried pumpkin flowers in batter. One of my favorites.
