From AIS Bulletin #289 April 1993 Introducing EMPEROR'S COMMAND. This flower starts the season as a double (6 falls) and progresses to 10 falls as the blooms continue to open with a nice long bloom season. The 6.5" flower has excellent substance that holds up flawlessly in extreme heat on 36" stalks. The falls are near white with violet blue streaking in a uniform sanded pattern. See color picture in January 1993 Flower & Garden Magazine. $35. Nicholls Gardens.
