Asiatic Lilies

Asian Lily Bought in a Pot

Once the flowers have fallen off, do I just keep looking after it until the next ones appear? What about the leaves that turn brown at the bottom? Is it correct to remove them and will they grow in that space again because the shaft looks very barren if you keep on removing them?

Generally, with Asiatic lilies, once they have finished blooming, that’s it. While it's fine to remove the spent blooms or stems, allow the leaves to remain on the plant until they have completely died back. The plant requires this foliage to gather energy for next season's blooms.
