Question about stargazer Lilly

coalminerwifeJuly 12, 2013

I planted a few of these bulbs. They have grown.. One has even opened up but died after a few days..the one that look like it died has brown spots on the leafs and the the flowers have fell off.. One of the buds that hadn't bloomed yet has disappeared lol.. Is something eating it? The other bulbs that I planted look to be getting ready to open up.. ( new to gardening)

Hi & welcome to GardenWeb!

What you've described is normal. The incredibly beautiful flowers of these bulbs are very short-lived. After the flowers are finished, the foliage will also fade away, turning yellow, then falling off. If left alone, they should be back for another show about this same time next year.

I'm sorry, I don't know what critters might munch lilies. Hope you get to see that last one!
