This red leaved banana is a stunning, though non-permanent, addition to your garden. Its huge translucent leaves catch the light. Grows 10-15 ft in a season. Sun, water and food make it happy. Overwinter indoors or treat as a temporary addition to your garden ... as it's only hardy into the mid twenties for brief periods. Frost hardy to upper USDA zone 9.
