Description

This is a relatively hardy banana. Although it’s native to India, it has developed some resistance to cold over time; if given some shelter it can be grown outside in Northern Europe, though it does need good drainage. The green leaves have conspicuous maroon markings and red ribs, so that the entire plant is highly ornamental.
