I have the book Steven, they are right in that is what it says in the 
book.  What it says in the book is
"Z. macrosiphon is a Mexican species with large flowers carried in 
summer on stems about 15cms long.  The flowers are usually rose with a 
greenish tube.  A beautiful lemon-yellow form with golden anthers also 

Can someone confirm that statement please?
