I believe the plant in question is what is being sold in the trade as either
Xanthosoma maffafa or Xanthosoma 'Lime Zinger'.

I have seen the above 2 plants and they are the same plant.  It certainly
appears to be a yellow-leafed Xanthosoma.

X. maffafa can be purchased from Southern Shade
X. 'Lime Zinger' can be purchased from Gainesville Tree Farm

>From a landscape point of view, this yellow-leafed Xanthosoma is absolutely
stunning when planted next to Colocasia 'Black Magic' which is available
from Plant Delights Nurs. ( http://www.plantdel.com/ )
