Jill... Thanks. Smiling I love it. I am not the hybridizer of it. Yes I am named after it. For many , many years I went by the name Ponytail, though that got shortened to Pony over on Tinker's and Daylily Acution. I am a Daylily nut and they were my first real obsession with seeds. LOL A friend turned me on to the Daylily world and gave me my first seeds.

I had this beautiful double seedling that came from a well known hybridizer. I was having trouble with the seedling growing here and so I farmed it out to another grower so it wouldn't die and he was also working with doubles.

"A Pony for Ella" was one of the seedlings that his crosses produced and he sent it back to me. The name was picked by a contest among the Daylily folks and that person also got some fans of this Daylily.
