Question: Our home's previous owner had beautiful pink lilies in the yard (in bloom when we moved in July). He called them "Magic Lily." What are these, do they require any special care? The foliage has come up already, but is yellowing now...is it supposed to do that? Kathi McKenzie Dallas, TX
Answer: There is a variety of lily called 'Magic Eye', available through White Flower Farm (1-800-503-9624). It may be that the previous gardener just used that as his pet name for the lily, too. B
