'Musa Cliffortiana' [Clifford's banana plant]
Botanical studies of the leaves, flowers, stamen and other structures of a banana plant belonging to the banker and Dutch East India Company director George Clifford (1685-1760). Clifford's estate and gardens were at Hartenkamp in Holland. This banana was grown there in a heated glasshouse and is thought to a hybrid of Musa acuminate and Musa balbisiana and therefore a cultivar plantain. It was among the first, if not the first, plant of this type to fruit in Europe. Plate 2 from the monograph Musa Cliffortiana florens Hartecampi 1736 prope Harlemum, by Carl Linnaeus (Leiden, 1736). Inscribed above "MUSA CLIFFORTIANA" and upper right "pag. ultima". Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778) Swedish botanist and physician was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1753.
