    Any plant with 'Lily' in its name may attract the Lily Beetle.
    I have seen those plants and they are indeed beautiful.

    Hiya Kate---The word "lily" in in the common names only. It is actually in the Ginger family. The family name of lily plants is, Liliaceae....the Ginger plants's Family is , Zingiberaceae. I keep my eyes out for the lily beetle anyhow. I have had it a couple of years and I keep the roots wrapped in paper over the winter and set it out each year. This year is the first year that it has bloomed so nicely. I understand that these plants can be an invasive sort, but i remove the flower stem and root before they can make and drop seed.
