New Aquisition

百合 Bai He or lily bulbs, commonly used varieties are Lilium brownii, Lilium pumilium or Lilium lancifolium. Lilium lancifolium is Tiger Lily. When I saw them at Lowes, I grabbed myself a bag. When I was in Taiwan, I had eaten fresh lily bulb stir-fried with beef. It was very good. Taste was like a cross between potato and water chestnut.

赤芍 Chi Shao (red peony) and 白芍 Bai Shao (white peony). 芍藥 Shao Yao is herbaceous peony. Since we've already have two 牡丹 Mu Dan (tree peony), it's time to plant more herbaceous peonies. I bought "Shirley Temple" for white and "Karl Rosenfeild" for red.
