My Lillys the leaves have gone brown and they have not done well this year. Earler in the year I noticed a red beetle on them is this the reson and why?



Possibly - the red beetles sound like red lily beetles and it is their grubs that cause root damage and kill the plant. The beetles themselves cut grooves into lily leaves.

Most of my Lilies had a Lily leaf disease caused by all the rain we have had - they have looked really awful.
