From the mountains of East Africa, this wonderful banana has green leaves infused with lustrous burgundy, especially intense in the new growth. Stronger light = stronger color! They do not offset as do Musa Basjoo, but will die after it produces its spectacular and rare, red and purple bloom. You'll enjoy it a good while in the meantime, and, should it bloom for you, it's life and your investment will not have been in vain. Good in a pot if you live where it should winter indoors. In the ground: 10' T. Moist, rich soil is its favorite.

Minimum temperature: 10° F
