Lilly Sprouts Frozen overnight - what to do???

hyperdoggie(z 7 SE NM)March 25, 2006

Hi,

I have a patch of standard big-box store oriental lilies that have been sprouting nicely for the past month, these have all come back from last years planting. One of them (approx. 1 foot tall - grows to 4 foot) froze overnight a couple days ago in an unusual cold snap. Should I leave it be, or cut it off at the base? Is this the end for the bulb below? Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

It probably isn't the end for the bulb below. If I were you, I'd wait and see how much of the stalk dies, and don't cut at all, or cut very carefully, an inch at a time, until you hit live growth. There may still be live growth inside a stem that looks bad. You might lose this year's bloom.
