Bananas offer the garden a very lush tropical feel.
The dramatic Abyssinian banana produces the most amazingly beautiful paddle-like leaves up to 3m long and over half a metre wide. The leaves are a lush green with a prominent bright red spine.
It grows extremely quickly reaching a height of 1.8 – 2m in the first year. In ideal conditions it will reach 6m metres at maturity.
It can be grown in a pot, it prefers full sun but will handle dappled shade.
