Last year I ordered AUTUMN ORNGELITE from the HIPS sale. AO was
introduced in 1962 by G. Percy Brown before the color orange was really
perfected, except for Melba's ORANGE PARADE, 1959. I am doubting,
though, the authenticity of what I got from the sale. What I got was a
clean, glowing yellow self. There is no brown or any other muddy color in
this creation that has a 1930's form to it. I have been told that what I
have is ZANTHA.
If anybody grows either AUTUMN ORANGELITE or ZANTHA, please give
me your input.
Thanks in advance.
