Way, way down the east coast in Melbourne Australia your native Skunk
Cabbage has been spotted thriving happily in temperate zone 9/10.
A cold winter night would be 0-4deg C.

Grown from seed in July 93 in goes dormant in winter then cabbages
happily through spring and summer. I have it in big pots immersed in
shallow water.
It hasn't produced a skunk yet though.
