Tubers have been a part of natural medicine and a dietary staple for centuries. Some examples of a tuber are potatoes, sweet potatoes and taro. The tubers of the Daylily have a variety of uses as a botanical remedy.
A tuber is an oblong or round swollen growth from a plant that is found underground. It contains a starchy flesh that acts as food storage for the plant. It has buds or “eyes” on its surface where new plants can emerge.
