This fantastic architectural banana plant will create a great impact in any garden! Forming a dense bush with huge paddle fan like 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 3-4 years you will have leaves over 1M long. Hailing from Japan, it loves sunshine but it is hardy to -6C perfect for the UK climate! This Japanese Hardy Banana is brilliant if planted into a large pot and will create a real tropical feel to your garden. Note – it does not actually produce edible bananas in the Uk, it is a close cousin of comemrcial bananas, but they do not grow here in Uk climates. Grow it for it’s huge impact and size as a tropcial foliage plant.
