Hy hemaholics


Have you ever seen this or had buds like this , a friend of me has it on several daylilys this spring
On the foto he has cut the bud open so you can see the inside

I thougt gall midge , aldo than the buds are more ugly with knobs and so and will start to fal of and schrimp and rit
He says it's not the gall midge , that he knows and have seen before other years
I have been growing daylilys for more than 20 years and have never seen this

Maybe you have seen this before and have some answers

Might be bud blasting. I have had several buds show blasting this year.
Life is better at the lake.

Sue,

There are no bugs inside
I believe i could be thrips , because at the top of the bud there is a miniscule hole , thrips eat the eggs of the gallmidge

Also the potted daylilys are watered mutch more than those in the soil , and he had a drought for almost 6 weeks , and the garden was well composted
Thrips can you have after long dry period i believe
