X Post - Help We're Losing Crinum Lily

beverlyflaSeptember 18, 2013

Already posted in Tropicals Forum.

Zone 10. Six crinum lilies were planted at the same time in 2009, and all but one is still thriving. The one in distress has wrinkled, thinning eaves & deformed flower buds. It has been failing for at least 4 months. We planted these because they were supposed to be 'iron plants' needing little to no attention.

Anyone have an idea what is plaguing the one lily?

this doesn't seem to be a true lily
i am not an expert

but

in your position
i would cut off all the leaves and see what happens
if the growing season is over for these lilies i would uproot them and wait till march then replant them

this treatment because they are hardy and take any abuse thrown to them
except;
excess water
viral diseases
like i said i'm not an expert.....
