Ensete glaucum, the snow banana, has also been classified as Musa nepalensis, Ensete giganteum, or Ensete wilsonii.
It grows from 2,600–8,800 feet (790–2,680 m) in elevation.
Ensete glaucum has a thick, waxy and blue, solitary trunk. It grows larger than the Abyssinian Banana (Ensete ventricosum).
Its leaves are 1.4–1.8 metres (4.6–5.9 ft) long and 50–60 centimetres (20–24 in) wide.
It is easy to raise from seed. It is an extremely fast growing banana given heat, but not as hardy as the Abyssinian Banana (Ensete ventricosum), and is not as well known.
