The Chinese dwarf banana (Ensete lasiocarpum), also known as the golden lotus banana, is a plant of the Ensete genus. It is thus a close relative of bananas, and also a member of the Musaceae family. The plant is native to Yunnan Province in China, where it grows high in the mountains to an altitude of 2500 meters. It is known for its yellow erect flower (see image), usually occurring during the second year of cultivation, which can last a few months. Just before the opening, the flower resembles a lotus – from which the plant gets one of its names.
