This exciting ornamental is a cold-hardy mountain banana-relative fromChina. It grows banana-like leaves to height of 1-1,5 m, and then blooms with a showy golden "artichoke", "golden lotus" structure, lasting for months.

Ensete lasiocarpum is native to Yunnan, at high elevations, up to 2.500 m asl, with winter droughts and frosts, with some snow too!

This species is the only deciduous plant in the banana family. It can survive spells of drought and cold by loosing all leaves and resting as a bulb-like structure for months.

Ensete lasiocarpum was formerly named Musella lasiocarpa and "Musella" is still a used common name among plant lovers.
