Hybridizer Notes: ASIAN EMISSARY---(Border Heritage x Moonstruck Madness) 26 scapes. 5 flowers. Semi-evergreen. Midseason. Recurrent. A pale ivory cream flower with a bold lavender plum eye and a heavily ruffled and bubbled edge of plum purple and silver gold. Petals are heavily ruffled and carry a kind of raised braided and bubbled double edge. Form is very full, round and overlapped. Substance is smooth and holds well in full sun. An appealing garden flower that makes a very showy clump. Well branched scapes. Fertile.
