Nicola Spence, Chief Plant Health Officer, has stepped in to help you out! How amazing is that. She says "Peonies, lilies, lupins" Hope that helps?

More agreement from others too:
"The light pink are peonies. The red are day lilies. No idea on the ones on the right... Oh, wait. The ones on the right look like lupine. I can’t grow them here in the South so not familiar."

the green pods as you call it are seed heads, you can remove each individual one or wait till the whole truss has finished blooming to remove the whole truss, they will not bloom again. Do not remove the whorls of green leaves, these will feed the bulb for next year.

I only bought last week and there were 3 flowers and now just 1 which is turning also. So am not sure if there is any more flowering to come in this state? Thanks for your advice.

Ok Thanks so I think that the seedheads are the smaller stems I refer to (I am not a great Gardener!) so I should remove these all together. The instruction says dead head regularly, so I am presuming I am doing this so that they flower again rather than preparing them for next year? Have cropped the image so this appears larger now... Thanks!

Just wait for all the flowering to be done, then cut the part had the flowers, leave the whorls of leaves to put energy into the bulb.

I'm not 100% sure, but the green 'pods' you have look like seedheads to me (were there flowers there before?) Ideally when you deadhead you are trying to stop seedheads forming, so you take the whole flower (and the short stem if it is easier) but definitely take the bit where the flower joins the flower stalk - so you've taken off the bit that's called an 'ovary' and is where the seeds will form.
The brown bit looks like it could be a flower bud about to open. Give it a couple of days.

Dead Heading a lilium Golden Jubilee

Comment from Paul Austin

In forum: Lilium 'Golden Jubilee'

Lilium 'Golden Jubilee' anyone know how to dead head this? I'm not sure if it's just below the bloom or the entire stop stem which needs removing (about an inch to two inches long)? And do i remove these brown what appear to be buds? I'm not sure if these are new growth? See pic attached. Thanks

But they are not lilies, they are hemerocallis. Lilies are 'Lilium' in their formal name. Are you sure that hemerocallis are also toxic?

In forum: Lilium 'Fata Morgana'

Hi, Erika's Garden,
Your Lilium 'Fata Morgana' is here on Shoot. If you add it to your 'Plants I Have' list, you will get info on how to care for it, including when to cut back. As far as Lilium in general is concerned, it is always good to remove the spent flowers, but leave the rest of the plant for the season to feed the bulb/root. If you can stand it looking tatty, leave it to die down naturally and then remove the dead leaves.
