Q.Torch lilies

Zone Teasdale 84773 | vegas-davis-200345 added on August 9, 2016 | Answered

About a week after the first blooming of my first attempt at growing torch lilies, the hummingbirds have completely stripped them! I now hate hummingbirds! Do the lilies bloom again? Is there a way to keep the hummingbirds away?

I have never heard of hummingbirds stripping flowers off plants! That is bizarre behavior. Perhaps it is a small mammal or an insect infestation that attacked your plants? In any case, the flowers should come back and continue blooming for the rest of the summer, depending on the variety you have.
