*Symplocarpus* is a neat plant. It should be grown for the spectacular
leaves alone, if you have the right spot. Here are some photos of the more
unusal ones I've found in Michigan.

Solid yellow spathe, faintly marked in red. I've not gone looking to see if
this is consistent from year to year.…

Variegated leaves! I collected this with permisson from a dead black ash
swamp where it was likely to be destroyed by pipeline maintenance.
Hopefully it survived last year's drought - I should go check and see if
it's up.…
