Lily Plants
Q.

The wind blew down a single lily stalk. It was about 3 feet tall. Can it be planted? Or, is it good as dead?

It has lost its lifeline to nutrients but you can try reattaching it with a splint. See below. If by any chance it already had buds, put it in a vase of water to bloom. Generally, once a main stem is broken off, the plant is done for the year.
