Default I like to call it the "Camo" Banana.

Hello all-

I haven't posted here in awhile, but I came upon an interesting find at a nearby garden. The owner told me the name of the species, but I will have to go back and ask again. The leaves consist of white, gray, and green, and it likes the semi-shady area it is in. Supposedly it does not send up pups or propagate well, and is slow growing. Does anyone else have one of these?

*Drooling shamelessly*

Gabe, If they are still common down there next Spring maybe we could work something out . I will trade or buy ..... whatever

It's too cold to ship live plants anymore up here. I can ship semi/hard brugmansia cuttings year round but that is about it for my wintertime trading.

Is it Spring yet ?

scooter,
Im only 16, college is about two years away (I got about 1 1/2 growing seasons left) and nearly my entire collection that my "business partner" (for lack of better words, lol) already has is going on the market, so keep your head up, I can't hold on to these plants forever! ( I've had some rediculous offers for some of my plants!)

Not only is that an AE AE, pronounced "I I" it's a very nice one with a lot of pure white in the leaves. I have a couple here too. Cool plants indeed!

The most frequent place these turn up are on eBay, mostly ranging from $125 and on up to around $175 (plus shipping).

Warning - I once said I'd never pay over $100 for a banana but now have done it several times including four Ae Ae of which two croaked. I should have quit staring at them so much because I found them to be very attractive and addicting.
