花蓮金針花季

Daylilies are a member of Hemerocallidaceae family. They are also known as the Golden-Needled Flowers for their golden stems. The golden-needled stems of Daylilies are edible and the flavor is described as musky-sweet and a little earthy.

Mt. Chike and Mt. Lioushihdan are the 2 major places in Hualien for picturesque daylily blossoms from August through September each year. The residents relied on sweet potatoes, corns, peas, as well as pigs and chickens for living, until they realized that the fertile lands of Mt. Chike and Mt. Lioushihdan are perfect for daylily plantation, and daylily could also be the major crop as they can be kept for a period of time after dehydration. Today, corns, sweet potatoes, and peas are no longer seen as they are substituted with golden daylily flowers over the mountain. Daylily is also known as “Day Flower” for it only takes a day from a mature bud to blossom. The flowers are inedible and lost economic value when they start to bloom. There are 7 pavilions established in the names of Daylily on Mt. Lioushihdan that are great places to view daylilies.
