REMARKS

Belongs to the banana family. This variety has inedible bananas with attractive upright growing flowers. Once the flower is dead the banana plant will die to, but it makes new plants from its base. Plant out of the wind. It is a tropical (rain forest) plant which in our climate needs plenty of water. Fertilise regularly to keep leaves green.
