I don't "do" lilies....they don't like my garden...but I seem to have found a spot that has allowed a tall yellow asiatic to survive for 3 years.

I was anxiously awaiting it's bloom and went out this afternoon and every bud had a neat hole in it....

What does that??

Not seeing anything "buggy"... the only thing that seems evenly slightly chewed is the monarda.....and I figure.."Who cares?"...
But the lily...I CARE!!!

June bugs are emerging right now and they like to nibble on lilies as well. OR it could be that a caterpillar or worm ate its way into, or out of, the lily. Either way, Sevin powder is a good treatment if you don't mind using a chemical. (It degrades swiftly.)
