Musella Lasiocarpa. Golden Lotus Banana.  

The Musella Lasiocarpa brings an amazing tropical feeling to your garden. Huge exotic paddle shaped leaves, lush green in colour give an instant impact and a sense of the jungle. Once mature the largest stem produces a large spectacular bright yellow flower that resembles a lotus flower lasting up to 6 months. Rarely exceeds 2m tall so great for the smaller gardens too. Suckers freely.

Fast growing and easy to grow just water and feed generously during the growing season. Root hardy in much of the UK. Best kept sheltered from strong winds to avoid the leaves shredding.
