I have Foxtail lily flowers that I have had for several years. In the past couple of years or so, the leaves have been turning brown before the plant even blooms. The plant finally blooms, but the leaves are brown. What is causing that?

These plants are prone to root rot if the soil is allowed to become too moist by poor watering practices or overcrowding. With this fungal disease, plant leaves will often turn brown prior to blooming. Keeping plants dry and providing adequate air circulation can help alleviate problems, as will dividing the plants. The use of copper fungicides can also aid with prevention.
