We all have had this pop up, a neighbor came over to check out the yard. He said he had a lily that leaves looked funny (variagated). Could I look at the plant? I went over to his house and I could not give him an answer, but I told him I would post the photos of the leaves on this forum. (He is not into computers or I would have given him this address.) None of my lilies look like this. Is this a VIRUS?

I can't really say. Virus generally disrupts at the cellular level making the breaking look more checkerboard like. When the breaking is more along the line of the veins it is usually a nutrition problem.

But I have never seen anything look this bad Confused . If it were in my garden I think I would toss it to be on the safe side. But that's just my opinion and unwillingness to take the risk (kind of like the stock market). Maybe someone else will pipe up...

It almost looks like an indoor plant. If it is a lily, I would remove it too. Though it looks so perfectly patterned. None of my leaf troubles ever looked that perfect.

I wondered too if it was really a lily. It looks like it might also have other damage so it is hard to tell (see the tips of virtually all of the leaves).

Thanks, I will tell him. He didn't want to dig it up. I will take a photo when it blooms.

Any bloom yet?
Where are we going, and why am I in this hand-basket?
