Last year I purchased it from the Lily Nook and all blooms were fine. Until today all blooms were perfect and then I saw these petals. Do I have to discard the bulb?

Thanks for any help and/or advice.

My 2 cents worth, no. It doesn't look like virus if that is what you are worried about.

Thanks. What causes it to happen? Only one flower has the ailment.

It looks like something that happened when the bloom was in bud. Not all tepals are affected and the damage looks like it was one-sided. Maybe a hot day?

Right: not a virus, and no need to remove it.

Beautiful lily. I have a red one that looks very much like that on just one bloom. I thought maybe it was from the heavy rain when it was in bud, but just guessing.
