Yellow leafed Stargazers

flutterbyme(z8 AZ)May 23, 2006

Hi :-)

This is my first year planting Stargazers. I planted them in pots with good soil and they get lots of sun. Just recently the top leaves have started turning yellow... I am not to sure what I am doing wrong. The only thing I could think of is that I am watering them to much? Any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Crystal

That certainly sounds like the most likely cause of the yellowing. Lilies must have excellent drainage and they don't mind drying out a bit. It's better to keep them too dry than too wet. I'd urge you to let them dry out before watering again. Since you're in Arizona, you might want to give them afternoon shade. That afternoon sun is brutal and lilies like a little shade.
