    Snow Banana
    Also classified Musa nepalensis

    A rare, little known banana that grows well in barren rocky areas in addition to tropical conditions. Grown for the very large, bright blue- green leaves and the red flower head. Little fruits with big seeds grow to about 3 inches long. More ornamental than edible.

    This tropical beauty is a vigorous, fast growing plant perfect for the deck as well as greenhouse. A display of flowers bloom on a long, thick hanging pendulum. Although it looks like a true banana it is not. A herbaceous perennial with bright blue to olive-green leaves. Growing height will depend on culture, with potted plants remaining much smaller. Can be grown outdoors as a returning perennial from zones 8 and higher. A truly unique ornamental.
    Fun Facts:

    1. During dry periods the upper part of the plant can die back – resuming growth when moisture returns
    2. Native only to China and Himalayas

    Many of our customers grow them in pots and bring indoors when the weather turns rough.

    Buyers should do their own research for plant uses.
