Descriptions:
H. 'Skunk' is an unusual -- perhaps unique -- sport of the popular tetraploid H. 'Fire and Ice', which is a reversed-variegation sport of popular H. 'Patriot' also tetraploid.
Very odd cultivar name. Very odd foliage.
H. 'Skunk' has thick substance, rich dark colors, and each and every leaf carries a narrow white stripe down the center of the leaf.
The unique thing about 'Skunk' is that in its entire life there has never been a solid green leaf. Each and every leaf carries that white center stripe.
