Fresh 2023 seed

Musa itinerans Yunnan banana is a semi-hardy Musa variety coming from high altitudes in China‘s Yunnan province. We thought that it could be grown in the same way as Basjoo or Sikkimensis i.e. hardy down to the root stock if protected. So far though I have not successfully over wintered any outdoors in our frost prone location. Seedlings from the previous two years have grown quickly with a pale bluish tint to the leaves and stems on delicate tall slim plants that add a touch of elegance to the garden border with very thin tall stems. Over winters ok in a frost free well lit location if kept on the dry side.
