A stunning addition to your subtropical garden.  Its ornamental, with beautiful paddle shaped leaves, and doesn't produce edible bananas.

As with all musa/bananas, the nutritional requirements are high and plants will benefit from an effective fertiliser programme. All banana plants require regular watering during hot spells.
