Oriental Lily Leaves Yellow/Brown and fall off??

Posted by hydrangeasnohio z5b (My Page) on

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with my problem. I have two Oriental Lilies that are on my Southwest corner of my house and get alot of sun. They bloom fine, but before they are done blooming the leaves turn yellow/brown and fall off. I have Oriental Lilies all over my yard and these are the only ones that do that. I water the whole yard pretty evenly and couldn't imagine that is the problem. Only thing I can think of is last year I had a cat using that bed as a litter box. He never made any deposits right on top of them, but maybe within 2 feet or so. Could that be it?? I haven't had the problem this year so far with the cat again. Any help would be greatly appreciated! One of the lilies is my favorite in the yard and I do not have another. I really do not want to lose them.

RE: Oriental Lily Leaves Yellow/Brown and fall off??

In many areas Oriental lilies benefit from some afternoon shade. IF it is really hot and sunny in that spot then they may need extra water. Lilies yellowing/browing up from the bottom is often lack of water. I seriously doubt the cat has anything to do with it. Poop generally fertilizes rather than damages.
