This one is named for me, Marilyn Beth Grua and it is a wonderful Daylily!

I love, love, love this Daylily! It is very beautiful! I love the chartreuse throat! Love the contrast between the purple and the chartreuse colors! Love the way the petals and sepals twist and turn! I'm always excited to see it in bloom every year!

I'm very honored that Dan Bachman wanted to name a Daylily after me! He gave me 4 or 5 choices in 2004 to pick from to have my name on it and as I looked at all the choices in his field, I kept going back to this one. It is stunningly beautiful! Very memorable!

Thanks so much Dan!
