Not sure what's going on with this but it's now forming a distorted bud. I'll see what happens next year. I had a weirdly twisted and only 6" tall oriental last year and this year it's doubled and come up looking very healthy. Anyone ever see anything like this?

I haven't. Be interested to see how it turns out. Smiling
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

Sure. A Purple Prince that was virused to the hilt! Seriously, I had a couple behave the same way. In fact, I've got two potted up over at my daughter's house for observation right now. Your plant might be living with a single virus and under normal circumstances, look and perform just fine. But when some sort of stress or strain is added to the picture, the virus symptoms become apparent. You might want to disbud and pot it up to isolate it and hold for observation next year. But, I've had plants behave exactly in the same manner as you describe--all twisted and short, etc., only to find out they were in the process of double nosing or dividing for the next year.

Normally, I usually think of henryii as a most virus resistance species.

Early cold damage can produce this also.

Trying to get a good look at the foliage, but I believe it is virused.

My only thought is that I know henryi is know for it's virus resistance. I guess next year will tell.

BAD WEATHER CAN DO THAT! Don't give up on it yet. Plus it looks like it may have a touch of botrytis that could have caused that if it was on the bud.

Weather can do that. We have all sorts of weather here and I have had lilies look like that one year, mark it to follow up next growing year and it looks perfect. I'd hold off any decision to chuck it, until next year.
