'Ascot' is the same plant mistakenly called 'Red Aspen'. 'Ascot' was one of the unreleased fringed varieties that Cobia Enterprises was working on prior to their closure. Many new Cobia varieties were never named and released as the new owners destroyed all plant materialS. 'Ascot' appears to be a lucky rescue prior to this closure. Cobia appears to have been one of a few hybridizers working on the fringe factor. The later Cobia hybrids were hexaploid and octopoid plants and usually sterile. 'Ascot' would be in this category. C. 1980s. Cobia 1992: 54 has a picture of what appears to be 'Ascot' on the lower half.
