Fasciation In Lilies          by IRLS Member   Mary O'Connor
FASCIATION:   a malformation of plant stems commonly manifested as enlargement and flattening
as if several stems were fused around a single point but instead becomes elongated producing
flattened, ribbon-like, crested, or elaborately contorted tissue.

Any occurrence of fasciation has several possible causes, including hormonal, genetic, bacterial,
fungal, viral and environmental causes.
