Buy Musa basjoo Japanese banana: A fabulous specimen plant

  • Position: mainly sunny, with a little midday shade
  • Soil: rich and fertile or loam based compost in pots
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowers: white flowers in bronze/red bracts
  • Hardiness: half hardy - will need protection in winter

    An extraordinary, architectural plant with huge, green, paddle-like leaves that can each grow up to 3m long. It produces creamy yellow flowers in summer, that are often followed by yellowish-green fruit. These are not tasty enough to eat, however the plants look brilliant when incorporated into a jungle-style planting schemes, and can be potted up into large pots and treated as a dynamic feature.

  • Garden care:Though the root is fairly hardy, you should apply a thick layer of mulch to protect the crown in autumn and protect the foliage with a blanket of fleece or straw. In colder areas, or where the soil remains heavy in winter, they are best grown in pots, so they can be over-wintered under glass.
