Will my lily survive?

VickililyAugust 1, 2013

Something bit the entire stalk off my lily, right down to the ground. Will it come back next year?

Possible. But it is the stalk that feeds and replenishes the bulb for next season's growth. With luck there's still some 5-6 inches of stalk left below ground level and that might be enough. The bulbs can be pretty resilient to this kind of damage. No 100% guarantees though.
