ive had an orange Crown imperial that's has been doing well until last year when something eat it all. Didn't expect it to survive but it did. However something is eating it again. Could it be Lilly beetles? The plant is about seven years old.

My empress of India does selfseed but they only germinate in late autumn which is a bit odd

Mine is not against the house. it stands fully exposed next to a metal railing. The ones that were in a much more sheltered position have almost died and the one growing next to this one is also almost dead. The last one still standing seems to be very reluctant to give up.
