Lily blossom

Asked June 22, 2020, 5:58 PM EDT

Hi, This is the second year for this lily bulb, and while the stems and leaves look ok, the blossom is not right. Any ideas? Thanks so much, Carole

Do these bugs attack asiatic lilies too? Today one of the blossoms is more open, but still looking weird. I'm not seeing any bugs, are they really tiny?

Probably, they attack any flowering plants and are good at hiding. They damage buds and are gone before the bud is big enough to look deformed.
