Edible onion, daylily, rose and dianthus flowers

If you want to add a beautiful touch to a salad or dinner plate, add a flower!  Many flowers are edible.
Herb flowers are edible-like basil, thyme, oregano, calendula/pot marigold, sage, lavender, nasturtium, chamomile, borage, bee balm and rosemary.
Vegetable flowers are edible-like broccoli, cabbage, kale, bean, pea, onion, chives, garlic, zucchini, chicory.
Some plants we consider weeds are edible-like dandelions flowers and greens and clover flowers.
Then there are the ornamentals that are edible like daylilies, orchids, violets, chrysanthemums, honeysuckle, lilac, roses, dianthus, passion flower, daisies, scented geraniums, snapdragons, tulips and sunflowers.
You can quickly look on line to verify that your ornamental is indeed edible which is recommended just to be on the safe side.
