Hi everyone, I planted few rows of Asiatic and Oriental lilies , we had a lot of rain recently and I noticed just before developing the buds the top of the Lilly stick curled and turned black, any idea on what's happening? Can I deadhead the tip of the stick and expect new shoots to continue and develop buds? See photos thanks guys

I'm no expert, but it's just too late in the year for lilies. All of mine have died off for the year and or temps are still in the 70s and 80s.

I don't recognize your flag. Where are you? There are many "Octobers" depending upon climate.

Duhh. Thanks, I needed that. So it's early growing season, spring. I have no special knowledge to base a guess on, but I would guess at genetic failure. That is the meristem, and your plant has just had a spontaneous abortion.

I thought Windows 10 was set up to work on everything @DirtMechanic, computers, pads and phones, obviously not! I don't have a modern phone so it's not a problem for me.
