#629 They called me Ensete ventricosum, also known as Musa laurentii, Musa holstii, Ensete buchananii, Musa schweinfurthii, Musa buchananii, Ensete holstii, Ensete schweinfurthii, Ensete laurentii, and Ensete ventricosum var. montbeliardii. I pay homage to the male botanists Laurent (I couldn’t find his records), Holst (I couldn’t find his records), Georg August Schweinfurth, Montbeliard (I couldn’t find his records), and John Buchanan, or Alex M. Buchanan. They first catalogued me in 1948.
