Musella lasiocarpa Yunnan Dwarf Banana - 5pcs seeds/packet
Musella lasiocarpa is an exciting banana relative that comes from high altitudes (to a frosty 2800 m (9200 ft.) !) in Yunnan Province in China.
The maximum height of the plant is only about 1.5 m (5 ft.), half of which is a very stout, conical trunk, which is then topped by a crown of handsome, slightly glaucous, broad leaves.
From early age, the rhizome produces many suckers. The inflorescence, which is big and bright yellow, appears in its second year, and grows upright at the top of the trunk.
As the inflorescence grows in size, tiny bananas begin to appear under each bract, which curls back to reveal the fruits.
