I'm sorry to disagree with you, but I must present a different opinion
for the sake of the other members.  I have grown ZANTHA for the past
five years and it has some major faults.  First the flower petals are
always twisted.  Second the stalks always grow at an angle, like they
have been in a major wind storm.  It does have a great saturation of
yellow color, which in the 40's must have been impressive.  Not Dykes
Medal quality to me.
