Problem with foliage on lilies and lirope.

My lilies and varigated lirope all have yellow spots on the foliage. Will too much water cause this?

Thanks for writing. Yellow spots on leaves are often caused by fungal diseases, which can be encouraged by too much water. But without being able to see your plants, I can't really say for sure what the problem is.
