Tiger Lily Not Blooming?

What could cause my Tiger Lily to not bloom? I have read about shocking it with a spade plunged into the soil about 1 ft away from it, but that didn't help. It is not so large that it needs to be divided.

Marcella,

In the spring as the stem of the lily was close to coming out of the ground, if the lily was stepped on by yourself or an animal...like often happens around here as my 2 dogs run through the flowerbeds, the top of the lily will not produce buds. It will have a distorted top or just a top that seems to just end...just will have leaves to the top of the stem.

The bulb will be fine and will actually probably be even bigger because all its energy will go into the bulb instead of producing flowers.

Protect the lily with a little fence or mark it somehow for next year.

I wouldn't shock it with a spade. You will disturb the roots and some lilies, for example martegons, need to be left undisturbed for a few years before you will even get the first flowers on them.
