When the flower petals begin to wilt you can cut off the flower. More will be produced on the flowering stem so leave it alone. In the later part of the summer when no more flowers are being produced you can cut down the flower stalk to just below the leaves. Full sunshine is great for your lily. Water once or twice a week and feed once during the growing season. Enjoy!
