Newbie here: what do I do with my lilies now?

16 years ago

Hi! I am new to the world of lilies, so I am hoping that you can provide me with the information that I need!

I planted several oriental lilies in my new bed a couple of months ago. The Star Fighter bloomed beautifully, and now the other ones are also starting to bloom. The thing is, a couple of them are turning brown and yellow. From what I read in this forum, I think that I probably overwatered them.

So, my question is, what do I do now? Do I just stop watering and see what happens, or do I need to dig them up?

Also, with these lilies, do I leave them in the ground over the winter (I am in zone 5 in NE Ohio)? Will they get bigger with more stems sprouting up from each bulb, or??? And do the stems get stronger every year, esp. since some of them are rather bendy and weak this year?

Thanks in advance for all your help!
