|the lilies are not all died down yet and we got a big snowstorm here.......|
the temps are colder but not real cold
the weather is to warm up next week
but wander what happened to all the green stem lilies out there
everything was late to finish off this year and die back here due to the summer being warm and such

|Difficult to understand what you're trying to say here; or ask :S|

|Well in the end the Snow melted.....|
what I meant to ask is what would happen to the lilies in the event they get covered in huge amounts of snow before they were all died back and yellow..........
the snow came and went and the lilies are still green so I presume nothing happened.........
they are just slow to die back to the ground this year for some reason.....
Many of the trees here are normally all turned color and lost their leaves by now........we are a zone 4b but there are plenty of trees that have not even turned color yet.....

|Same here. While most of the trees are turning yellow and shedding leaves, my perennial grasses, hostas, agapanthus and even summer bulbs are still 'lush' and green; though we haven't had any snow (but almost freeze temps). |
While snow needs freezing temperatures to stay like that, it's also a good insulator for covered plants against those freezes, so perhaps that's why. Just let it take its course.
