buds were looking nice and fat....then fell off!!!
plants still look very healthy

On plant Lilium



Has something eaten them? Or did they dry out?

are they proper lilies or day lilies [hemerocallis]? the day lilies may have had fat buds due to gall midge. they would drop off. though new buds will form. if they are proper lilies then i agree with spritz.
