Large Healthy Corm

Musella lasiocarpa 'Chinese Yellow'- At one time this rare banana was thought to be extinct in the wild in its native Yunnan, China, home. Its butter-yellow inflorescence is unmatched in show. Bracts are stiff and waxy and may last up to nine months on the plant. On some plants, 2 or 3 inflorescences are produced. Because of its temperate origin, it may prove very hardy, but it remains to be widely tested. It produces small, fuzzy, rounded, nearly flat, seeded and inedible bananas. Highly recommended for unique flowers, foliage, and form. Clumps tightly, does not run. Prices drastically reduced from last year as propagation has increased numbers. (Was once priced $275.)
