I'd modify it to say the current interest in and awareness of the zonal
pattern can be attributed to VICTORIA FALLS, and that cultivar does provide
some clues as to the origin.  

One of my many arilbred projects was the analysis of flower patterns in
terms of ancestral species.  This was before the term "zonal" gained
popularity, but this was one pattern for which I could find no evidence in
the arils and thus went looking to the TBs.  It tends to be more subtle in
the ABs, but from analyzing the pedigrees of the affected cultivars I
concluded that the trait must have been latent in the TBs used by C.G.
