Looks like a Stargazer lily, no?

No it's not a Star Gazer. I have only ever had one and it died a long time ago. I found 2 brite red beetles on one of my lilies this morning. They were about 1cm long. Are these lily beetles.?So far I haven't seen any others.

Oh yes they are as squished as can be. By what I have read they can be a real problem but did not know we had them here.

It's an OT hybrid lily. I have Lavon, which is similar but with less red. Yours might be Robert Swanson, not sure.

I'm glad I'm not battling lily beetles, sure takes a lot of the pleasure out of gardening with lilies, that's for sure.
