floota said:When judging daylily exhibitions, judges panels almost always concur ( a panel is a group of 3 judges, two senior judges and the third can be a junior judge) that bumps on a bloom indicate the presence of thrips and will deduct points accordingly. On the open bloom or blooms, we almost always see evidence that thrips have been at work. I've judged shows in my region and adjacent regions for years, and this has been the line of thought.
In my own gardens, I've seen evidence that the bumps indicate thrips.
