Created in 2004, but Introduced to the Public in 2005, this Marietta Garden's Introduction from Elizabeth Shooter: is Exceptionally Beautiful and Unique. She is 42" tall and 6" or larger flower. A pink variant with a beautiful lavender eye and lavender edging and rose color veining, She is a Midseason Bloomer and also a Rebloomer. I got mine from Blue Ridge Daylily Auction, and these were the last 2 fans for awhile as Marietta is sold out as it has to reproduce for a couple more years before kickin chickin will make more fans to be able to sell to the public..peace..mike.
