I'm looking to buy daylilies for some guild plantings but want to be sure these are edible before ordering

as far as i know, all true hemerocallis daylillies are edible, but in my experience, many of the ones that aren’t the standard ‘wild’ orange one are less palatable as raw flowers. less noticeable when it’s cooked (stir fried, etc) flowerbuds.
I'm not dead! I feel happy! I'd like to go for a walk! I'll even read a tiny ad:
