Q.Asiatic Lily Has Blooms, But Not Opening

Zone OBrien, FL | Anonymous added on June 1, 2021 | Answered

I planted two Asiatic Lilies in large pots with Miracle Grow potting soil. At the time they had beautiful blooms. the petals then fell off and I had all new blooms, but they did not open and look like they are just drying up. I have watered them daily and don’t know what to do next.

They only bloom once, so you are probably seeing a seedhead. You can cut that off because the seeds, if grown, would not look like its parents. You can remove the whole stem but let the leaves wither and yellow before removing them. That is how the bulb is nourished for next year.
