Ensete glaucum - Snow Banana- 5pcs seeds/packet

This exciting but little-known banana relative is also known as Musa nepalensis and Ensete giganteum, hinting at the plant's giant size, and is synonymous with the legendary "Snow Banana" Ensete wilsonii. It grows in China (Yunnan 800-2700 m (2600-8800 ft.) asl !!!), Nepal, India, Myanmar, Thailand, and possibly also in Tibet, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Papua, New Guinea. It has a thick, solitary, waxy blue trunk; huge, bluish leaves up to 3 m (10 ft.) long; and a huge, nodding, banana-producing inflorescence. It is extremely fast growing and so requires a good supply of fertilizer and water and is best planted in rich soil.

Min. temp.: -24°C
