Ida's Magic was a really pretty flower that charmed me despite her price tag, unfortuantely, in my hot So. NJ garden, she was often disfigured by the heat or her color was mottled by rain and the requent waterings she required.

This was one of my "zone test" lilies. It did not survive our zone 4 winter. Too bad, since it's a SSM.
