Possibly the hardiest Ensete species, this plant originates from high altitude China so is accustomed to cooler regions. The huge, glaucous leaves are architectural and decorative, great for the tropical borders or large containers.Growing Instructions: As each seed germinates, transfer it to a 3in pot of good free draining compost taking care not to damage the fragile roots. Pot on as required, the larger the container the larger the plant will grow.
Aftercare Instructions: Grow on in warm well lit conditions. During summer they can be stood outside or planted in the border but should be brought into well lit frost free conditions for the winter when it should be kept moderately dry. Some discoloration of the leaf ends may occur through the winter months, but this won't harm the plant.
Hardy in zones 8-10.
