Q.Asian Lily

Anonymous added on May 24, 2011 | Answered

The Asian Lily, which is usually so healthy, looks the same as my tomatoes did last year when they had the blight. Is it possible that it was airborn and carried onto the soil or leaves? They were in the same area. I see ladybugs on them and I thought that was a good thing. Should I throw the pot out and pull the diseased ones out of the soil and use all new soil?

It is definitely possible that the plant has been affected with blight, as this most commonly affects Asiatic lilies. I would remove and discard any affected plant material and repot with new soil. If the botrytis blight is severe, applying a fungicide can help prevent the disease from occurring on other plants in the garden.
