Lily stems turn brown before blooming

dduz(z4 WI)April 29, 2010

Hi all,

I had a heck of a problem the last couple of years. All of my lily stems turn yellow/brown before and while they are blooming. Is there something in the soil that makes them do that? I do not overfertilize or water. Any ideas?

Thanks so much,

Sounds like Botrytis.
