Dumb and dying

worcestermaJune 15, 2006

I'm not that knowledgeable about plants; I have some Lilies that appear to be dying and I don't know what to do. The leaves are turning yellow and developing reddish brown spots then falling off. The buds are very close, but have not bloomed yet. Help before they go to lily heaven!

This is what was happening to mine, and it was poor drainage. We had tons of rain in 1 week and they suffered. Make sure you have them in a well drained spot.

Your lilies may have Botyritis (fungus)... the spots can be the telling feature. Check out lily diseases on the web to confirm...check out the NALS (North American Lily Society).
If it is, there are fungicides out there that can help.
A good local nursery can help determine what you have and what can assist.
