Design IdeasThis Banana can turn a neglected backyard corner into a lush jungle of stems and leaves. Clumping Banana such as this are very effective fillers and background plants. Perfect for Asian gardens and those with a tropical flair. Equally at home around swimming pools and water gardens. Grows well in pots on porch or patio, to flank sculpture, fountains or specialty furniture. Plant with a bold hand knowing it won't overwhelm like the larger Banana.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
