Increasingly popular as a summer bedding plant, for its huge dark leaves, the Abyssinian banana does not actually produce fruit / bananas in this climate. Very showy folliage makes a dramatic focal point. Thios plant is not fully hardy in all parts of Ireland, and will need winter protection in most areas, either with heavy mulching, if in the ground, or by bringing indoors if in a pot. Plant into rich, fertile soil for maximum growth. 3 litre pots, plants 45-60cms tall. Irish-grown plants. Please note: items displayed on this website may not be in stock in each of our shops.
