Explore Apr 14, 2010 #31 Stunned, I asked myself “What is it?” Looks like an artichoke. Or a banana flower. But it’s so bright and colorful. So exotic and intriguing. After a search of the plant list at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, I found it was a Musa lasciocarpa and a Bing Search yielded this article, An Exotic Beauty from China By David A. Bar-Zvi, Curator of Herbaceous Monocots, Garden News, 1997. Here are some excerpts… The countryside around Kunming, China is intensively cultivated. Musella is a common sight in this region. Farmers even use the plants as pig fodder. Kunming is located at the same latitude as the middle Florida Keys and about 5000 feet above sea level. My first encounter with this strange banana-like plant occurred at a slide show in Cairns, Australia. A guest speaker from China presented some slides of possible ornamentals for the future. Musella lasiocarpa was included. The slides showed a large, bright yellow, spreading bud atop what appeared to be a four-foot banana plant. The plant was a gray-green color, with sturdy leaves. A year or so later, seeds of this Musella sp. arrived at a few places in South Florida, including Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. The hard, black, buckshot-sized seeds proved to be difficult and slow to germinate. After about two months, raccoons made a meal of all of the seedlings and the remaining seeds never germinated. Our plants from the Smithsonian were a different story. They arrived small, fitting comfortably in a gallon pot. One plant in particular grew very well, needing to be repotted within a month. Very soon, side shoots were visible at the base. As winter approached it was apparent that a change was in the offing. The new leaves emerged with smaller blades. The apex began to swell. The whole crown of leaves bent downward exposing a brilliant yellow artichoke-like “bud”. We watched with fascination, day by day. The first set of bracts opened to expose a few tubular yellow flowers.The effect of the “flowers” is rather dramatic, like a King Protea, or a large, ornamental yellow thistle.
