M.lasiocarpa is one of the toughest ornamental banana trees in the UK. In year 5 or 6 it will produce an amazing yellow flower (hence the name). The flower can last for up to 9 months! 

Large, paddle shaped, green banana plant leaves have red blotches, creating an architectural focal point.

It’s a shorter version of the other banana plants, reaching about 5-6 feet maximum. It’s an ideal plant to be kept in pot. It’s tolerant to any situation from shade to full sun. 

As any other banana, it requires a fairly moist soil (however, not boggy) and feed with a slow release fertiliser if kept in a pot.

Outdoor plants pot sizes
Outdoor plants pot sizes

With items such as ferns, juvenile tree ferns and herbaceous plants it is difficult to give the exact size of each species when such a wide range of plants are grown so we specify standard pot sizes to give an indication of the size and/or age of the plant you are buying.

Sometimes the pot size might vary slightly from the standard or we might listed as 2-3 litre pot, depending on the growers we purchased them from. However, the sizes of the plants are similar in height and spread.

Sometimes the plants might be photographed in decorative pots. However, please bear in mind that our plants are kept in plastic nursery pots.

Plants measurements
Plant measurements

For the outdoor plants, that are meant to be planted in the ground, the height of the pot is excluded from the measurement. The height is measured from the top of the pot to the tallest leaf or branch of the plant.

All plants are measured when brought to our nursery, however, due to natural factors, the actual size of the plant might change over time due to adjustments to the environment. When picking multiple plants for an order, we aim to pick matching plants.

Plant warranties
WARRANTIES

We can guarantee that the plants leave our nursery disease free, but weather and local conditions might affect their survival. Make sure you always make an informed purchasing decision.

The plants that leave our nursery are in the best condition, free of disease. Kept in adequate conditions (positioning and care), the plants are guaranteed for 3 months if they are planted in the ground or one year if they are kept in their original pots. Return policy applies only to plants that are in their original pots.

Great new additions to my banana family!

Just taken delivery of two “mini” banana plants (musella lasiocarpo) to add to my collection. Plants arrived in under a week from ordering in excellent condition. They were well packaged to protect the leaves and look to be strong and healthy plants which will join their bigger brothers, (Musa basjoos, also from the Palm Centre) in the garden tomorrow. Many thanks to the Palm Centre.
