[aroid-l] Dracunculus foliage

Dear All;
A few years ago it seems like the only Dracunculus I ever saw had all green foliage - without white chevron marks/stripes. Over the last few years I have been more successful growing this species and all my mature plants have these striking white chevrons. I recall hearing that only certain geographic forms were so marked. True?

I noticed that seedlings and small offsets have clear unmarked leaves.

Any comments on the incidence of this marked/unmarked forms of Dracunculus?

Thanks. Jim W.

ps you can see these white Chevrons on Alan Gallaway's Bleeding Dragon pics:
