The term asphodel derives from the Greek and literally means �valley of what is not reduced to ashes�. In fact, the asodeles, although they grow in areas particularly subject to fires, do not go up in flames. For the ancient Greeks and Romans it was a sacred plant and symbolized the resurrection of the dead and was used to decorate tombs

Flower (Latin): Asphodelus Microcarpus (Liliaceae)


Ideal for breakfast, in herbal teas and coffee, excellent in combination with both fresh and aged cheeses, recommended for fish marinades.
