White powdery mold on lily buds

Zone 94523 | Jasmineh419 added on May 11, 2018 | Answered

Hello, my lilies in the front yard have white mold on their buds. The ones in the back yard don’t. Do you know what might be causing it and what I can do to save them? I’m attaching pictures of them. I was watering them every day for 15 min at 5:30 am but have recently cut it to 15min every other day

Some types of Asiatic lilies have furry buds and little furballs where the leaves attach to the stem. This is perfectly normal! Your plants look healthy and you should be rewarded with some beautiful flowers!
