HELP!!! strange web?? on Lillies

janinecollette(6 NJ)June 3, 2008

Hi All! There appears to be a problem with several of my stargazer lillies. It seems like there is a web like substance growing on the tips on 3 of them. Any idea what this is? And how to treat it? I can't find the answer in my Ortho Problem Solver book.

Fuzzy buds are a completely normal thing for some lilies, the same cultivar will sometimes have more and sometimes have less. The fuzz will go away as the buds mature. Nothing to worry about.

Greenguy, I'm really glad you mentioned that! 2 of my new this year bulbs have fuzzy bulbs, and none of my older ones do, so I worried a bit that it was a bad thing. Now I know it isn't, so thanks!!

Lilies are SO much fun.
