Banana Tree Musa Basjoo
This fantastic architectural banana plant will create a great impact in any garden. Forming a dense bush with huge paddle fanlike leaves spreading gloriously out through the air it will create wonderful shadows on your patio. Once established the big leaves will unfurl as they emerge each year through the central trunk and within 3 to 4 years you will have leaves over 1m long.
Hailing from Japan, it loves sunshine but it is hardy to minus 6°C when protected with fleece over winter outside it is frost tender and will not survive being frozen. This Japanese Hardy Banana is brilliant if planted into a large pot and will create a real tropical feel to your garden.
