Daylily flowers help China's anti-poverty campaign to bloomDried daylily buds are among the most notable edible flowers in China. In the country's poverty alleviation campaign, planting the flower has become an effective means to bring fortune to farmers in China's northwest.
Farmer Ma Linze owns 1.3 hectares of daylily fields. As the flowers have yet to enter blooming season, Ma and his wife help others with their harvests.
The couple work from 4:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. every day for pay of 200 yuan (about 30 U.S. dollars). In Xingmin, the daylily bud picking season is about 50 days from early July to the end of August.
Daylilies are not native to Hongsipu, but the dry climate, sandy soil and sharp drop in temperature at night make it an ideal place to develop the lucrative industry.
