Darrell "Mr Epimedium" Probst found a variegated skunk cabbage in the 
woods of Pennsylvania a number of years (6 to 8?) ago. It was similar to 
the one described, with a wide gold band, and was definitely reminiscent 
of a hosta. He said it was visible from the road, and he had driven by 
it a number of times before spotting it.

The last I heard it had been shipped to a nursery in North Carolina, 
never to be seen again....

Global cooling update: an inch or two of wet snow fell on the 
Symplocarpus blooms this afternoon...
