Useful Flowers

Post all photos or prints of all flowers that are useful. Additional information in Group Details Section. Many cultures use flowers in cooking, or in salads, teas, and garnish for desserts. Creative uses: Roll spicy ones into handmade pasta dough, floral ones into homemade ice cream, or make floral simple syrup. Tips for eating flowers safely: Eat flowers you know to be consumable — if you are uncertain, consult a reference book on edible flowers and plants. Eat flowers you have grown yourself, or know are safe for consumption. Flowers from the florist or nursery: Often treated with pesticides or other chemicals.
Don't eat roadside flowers or those picked in public parks. Both may have pesticide or herbicide, or may be polluted by car exhaust.
Eat only petals. Remove pistils and stamens.
Allergies? Introduce edible flowers gradually. They may exacerbate allergies. Keep flowers fresh. Place them on moist paper towels and refrigerate in airtight container. Some will last up to 10 days. Ice water can revitalize limp flowers. Do research online and keep flowers safe and enjoyable.

Group Details

PLEASE REMEMBER: If you aren't sure if a certain flower is edible (or for some even touchable) research the flower online prior to recommending its' use.  

I have copied the group overview section of flower information for reference for safe use of edible flowers and posted it here with additional information.  Please feel free to read it often and be safe. 

Bon Appétit !

Most are already aware flowers play a large role in creating our wonderfully scented colognes and perfumes, or delight our loved ones in stunning floral bouquets, so I won't touch on that.

However, I know there are many who are extremely creative and crafty,  and can share many uses for our gorgeous flowers.  Ideas are welcome, along with your photos or prints of Useful Flowers.

For the purpose of this group, when a wallpaper is submitted :

Please submit only photos and prints.  As well, please submit what makes the flower(s) useful.  

Questions?  Please feel free to contact me directly by use my leader link, or posting to our Discussion Board and someone will respond to you a.s.a.p.

Please, no spam is allowed in the Useful Flowers group and will result in banning from the group.  Thank you for your consideration of others and my Useful Flowers group rules.
