Asiatic Lilies

SabndyH added on July 28, 2016 | Answered

We live in central Alberta and have had Asiatic lilies in our garden for the last 25 years. We live on an acreage. Some type of animal has started chewing the lily stalks off at the base. Then try dragging it away. It looks like they are after the buds, as we are finding some partially eaten buds. This is happening at night. What little (or big) critter do I have to blame for this? The lilies are coming into full bloom and it is frustrating to see this damage happening.

Its difficult to say. It is unlikely to be a large critter as they will usually nibble from the top down. They are possibly nibbling the base to fell the stalk as they cant reach the buds. Clever rabbits?
