Item number MQF4M
Musa basjoo Hardy Banana Plant 50cm Tall 1L Potted PlantThis fantastic architectural banana plant will create impact in any style of garden. Forming a dense bush with huge paddle fan like leaves spreading gloriously, it will create wonderful shadows on your patio. Once established, the large leaves will unfurl as they emerge each year through the central trunk and within 3-4 years you will have leaves over 1M long. Hailing from Japan, it loves sunshine but it is hardy to -6C so is happy in the UK climate. This Hardy Banana plant can be planted both direct into the ground or into a large pot where it can be placed in a sunny spot on the patio, adding a tropical feel all year-round. Note - it does not actually produce edible bananas in the UK, it is a close cousin of commercial bananas, but they do not grow here in UK climates - grow it for its dramatic impact and tropical foliage!
