Mottled daylilies

Posted by del_s 3 (My Page) on

We have had a number of daylilies that have opened up nicely but the petals are mottled, not the clear colour that one would normally expect. A few days later the same daylily will be fine and some others might have the discoloration. I had thought that rain might do this, but we have often had dry weather for days around these mottled blooms. Any ideas?

I am thinking, thrips? I know I had quite a few do that this year because I had no time to spray and had thrip damage on some, especially the darks. Some blooms were damaged while others opened up perfectly.

Could well be. I looked closer and on some flowers there are tiny elongated black bugs, more on yellow plants than on others. Is that them? Seems some plants are more susceptible than others.
