Edible Flowers

I love salads and get a kick out of decorating them with edible flowers. Now that spring is here, I look forward to foraging for flowers. These edible flowers are great for cake-top decorating too.

These are the ones I have tried and will plant a few to harvest throughout the growing season:
Peony petals
Yucca filamentosa "Adam's Needle"
Petals of flowers only on Yucca
Rocket Arugula

  • Viola (not pansies, but the perennial, self seeding Viola)
  • Nasturtium
  • Hosta Flowers (without stamen and anthers)
  • Rocket Arugula (Eruca sativa)
  • Lavender
  • Basil flowers
  • Mint flowers
  • Pinks - Dianthus
  • Chive and Onion flowers
  • Squash and Zuchinni (Corchets)
  • Sugar Snap Sweet Pea
  • Yucca filamentosa (petals only)
  • Borage 
  • Peony petals

My favourites are underlined.

Here are other online sources of edible flowers .
