Will my lily survive?

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

RE: Will my lily survive?

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.
