Musafolia Group

The Musafolia Group, having large leaves and being either tall or giant in size consists of cultivars whose leaves resemble those of banana plants (genus Musa). Until this group was designated, the cultivars were considered to be members of the Foliage Group.

The flowers of this group resemble those of the species and are not of the same size as modern cultivated varieties, but have a charm that appeals to minimalist enthusiasts.

The cultivars of this group are very late in flowering, if they flower at all. The editor has experimented extensively with this group and found that by keeping them growing, albeit slowly, over the winter months then they would flower in late September-October in the English Midlands.
