possibly not enough water or too much water. I would call a nursery and ask some one.
Good Luck

Answer by blackjap
there are a number of things you could do! citronella candles work well, or you could hang fly paper near the site, or for the long term or persistant pests you might want to look in to predatory insects or frogs to introduce to your garden.

Question by Jennifer: This plant reminds me of a cross between a hosta and lily of the valley…?
I saw this plant today and it has leaves like a hosta. They are green and outlined in white. They also have white flowers hanging down like lily of the valley. They do not lay like hostas, they are higher up. Does anyone have a name for this plant/flower? Thanks.

Yucca?

And in case that’s not right –
How large overall is this plant? How tall is the flower stalk?
