Frost Damaged Lily
This is one of my beautiful Stargazer lilies. It was so eagerly pushing up out of the ground on those warm days we had in April, but then the weather turned on us in May. The plant is still alive to be sure, but look at it. Maybe it will still bloom if it doesn't get zapped again. The frost burns are pretty harsh. I have to wonder if it needs to be planted more deeply. This has happened before. It's always a temptation to push the zone a little bit. I like to think of us as zone 5, but Ed says really we are in zone 4.
