Ensete glaucum - Snow Banana- 5pcs/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.
In cool climates it is deciduous and hardy enough to survive winters outdoors with some protection, especially if kept quite dry.
