Common Fringe Lily - Thysanotus tuberosos - Card
Australian Native plant
Reproduced from an original watercolour painting by Cheryl Hodges.
Greeting card 10 x 15cm, blank inside with white envelope
Text on reverse of card reads:
The Common Fringe Lily is widespread across NSW and Victoria. It grows to around 40cm, flowering for several weeks in spring, though each flower only lasts for a single day.
The tubers taste watery and almost flavourless and were roasted and eaten by Aboriginal peoples. Most lily tubers are also edible raw.
