    Wonderful photo and fascinating write-up, as always. I learned so much about a plant I may never see here in Maine. Thanks, Tamara!

    Thanks for a wonderful write up. Does anyone know if honey from these flowers is collected for commercial sale? Thanks!

    While being in Sicily,beginning of May 2013 on an Orchid study trip;I found that Asphodelus aestivus formed very strong,imposing plants and many( very photogenic).After reading your detailed research dessciptions,I see why it is so robust.No Orchids will grow very close to this plant.On one of my photos Asphodeline lutea grows side by side.with aestivus.
    Thanks Alice Jensen
