Not available online

A hardy banana with large paddle-shaped leaves. It is a classic 'architectural plant' that will bring a tropical, jungly feel to a sheltered garden. It can equally be kept in a pot and then brought into an unheated shed or greenhouse for the winter, away from wind and heavy rain. It produces a number of vibrant yellow flowers, and this species produces multiple side shoots, making it bushy, leafy and growing to a maximum height of approx 150cms. This plant will not produce fruit in Ireland, and the roots should be protected from hard frost. 10 litre pot, impressive 3-4ft tall plant with several off-shoots.
