Well Marge,
Will investigate for slugs, just seems too early for them. It also
appears to just be the front side of the plant that is effected.

I have not planted a lily within 40 ft of this. Not to mention I don't
have one that looks like it either. Maybe one of the neighborhood
critters planted it for me. Will have to browse around the and see if
someone has this... but I doubt it.. this is a evergreen and perfect
lawn neighborhood... except for my house:)
