This is such an aesthetic and pleasing look at the subject of edible flowers. Far more so than the one I wrote a while back (http://mycookinglife.com/2012/03/03/please-dont-eat-the-hyacinths-but-its-okay-to-drink-the-dandelions/). I just had to re-blog . And man! I wish I could draw and paint all my graphics. I tried it once when I wrote about the super hero, Coffee Man, (http://mycookinglife.com/2012/05/23/coffee-man-sigh-my-hero/). Well now that I’ve totally taken Illustrated Bites’ lovely post and used it to suggest you read more of mine, I guess I should just let you see this wonderful “Guide to Edible Flowers.”

Beautiful! I have fond memories of picking Illinois violets and biting the little bulb on the back. The nectar inside was exactly what you think flower nectar would taste like… sweet and light.

This Guide to Edible Flowers is as pretty as the flowers! Happy planting!
I love this. I tried to reblog but something went wrong so I have posted and linked back to this page. Hope that’s OK
[…] I also came across this amazing infographic which does a lovely job of summarising popular edible flowers. You’ll find this and lots of other brilliant illustrations at Illustrated Bites […]
Delightful!! Beautiful graphic….one of my favourite recipes is stuffed courgette (zucchini) flowers. As it’s almost impossible to buy the flowers here (in the UK) I grow them in my garden.
[…] Edible Flowers A pretty little infographic about some of my favorite things. I guess it’s the wrong season for it, but I thought I’d share anyway. […]
[…] Edible Beauties […]
[…] of all, a beautiful list of edible flowers by Illustrated bites and a very comprehensive edible flowers […]
This is fantastic! Thank you for sharing with us.

Lovely. I just have 2 regrets:
1. I wish you had included the Latin names of edible flowers. As an amateur ethno-botanist and herbalist, the first thing I learned is that listing the Latin name of flowers and herbs is imperative to avoid having people eat any piece of grass they pick
2. You spelled “BALAVA” instead of “Baklava”. It made me smile to see this Middle Eastern dessert referenced here. I’m from the Middle East and although I’m not a big fan of these sweets (too sweet), I love their different appellations (‘nightingale’s nest’, ‘baby’s fingers’, ‘qadi’s turban’, ‘lady’s triceps’, etc.)
