Lily of the Nile problem - Knowledgebase Question

Question by chelsea_zeal

I have a few lily of the niles in my yard, and after our big snow storm this year, they got all flattened and bogged down, so we cut all the leaves off at the base. Will they recover and grow back, or did the snowstorm kill them?

It's too early to know whether or not the roots survived your winter weather. When the soil warms next month, the plants should wake up from their winter's nap and begin to sprout. If you don't see any new growth by the end of April, the roots didn't make it and your plants should be replaced. Let's hope for the best!
