Brown leaves on tops of Lilies

jmvtheoneMay 28, 2006

I have about 20 lilies in a small garden on the southeast-facing side of my house. They are grouped together and almost all are doing fine except 3, they just started getting brown leaves near the tops of the stalks. Can anyone tell me what is cauing it and what I can do to stop it? The soil is mostly clay though I added peat moss and topsoil to this garden before planting anything to try to alleviate some problems.

Have you checked for aphids or other sucking insects? They prefer the tops and buds of lilies. Investigate this and if there is an infestation treat with ladybugs who will cheerily much them away.

If it's not an insect, you could have a fungal problem. In this case you would dust with physan.
