Comment
Chinese yellow banana(scientific name: Ensete lasiocarpum) is native to Yunnan Province, China and is a cold-resistant perennial in the family Musaceae. The golden bracts look like flowers of lotus. Bracts have 2 to 3 months. Branch diameter is 30 cm, and many small tubular organs at the base of the bract are flowers. What looks like a stem is called a leaf sheath. It is the same department as Banana (Banana) and {{Basyo}} , but like Basho, fruit can not be eaten. In China, rhizomes and leaf sheaths are used as pig food and flowers are used as hemostatic agents. A lotus is attached to a part of flower name, but it has nothing to do with lotus.
