Musella lasiocarpa Chinese Hardy Banana Plant 30cm Tall 1L Potted PlantWithout doubt the toughest and hardiest of all ornamental bananas in the UK, it is grown for it's dramatic, architectural leaves, and once mature, its amazing and long lasting golden yellow flowers - hence it's name. From high up in the Chinese Mountains of Yunnan, it is naturally very tough and exposed to temperaturees well below freezing so is totally winter hardy in the UK. Infact, even if leaves are damaged by frosts, new leaves will emerge in spring, as well as numerous 'pups' round the side. The flower is in fact it's last hurrah - a 6-month epic flower display. It is also much shorter and less vigorous than some other banana plants, growing to a more compact height of 4-5ft tall maximum, making it ideal for large pots in any size garden. Note - it does not produce any edible banana fruit, not even tiny ornamental ones.Very easy to grow, and a great exotic looking patio focal point.
