Musella Lasiocarpa
Chinese swarf banana

Height: Tall

This most unusual plant is very striking in appearance and makes a great talking point. The large golden lotus flower is spectacular; resembling an artichoke in strucure, it can last for several months. The plant requires rich soil and plenty of water, but can dry out between waterings. Large, green banana plant leaves have red blotches. An excellent plant for growing in a large container which can be moved into a conservatory or greenhouse in winter. Once the plant is over 2 years old it can be left growing out in the garden with some protection.
