  • full sun

This is a newly recognized species from northern Thailand and Vietnam.  It is a compact banana relative that does not clump like bananas (Musa sp.).  It will eventually produce a large inflorescence with showy red bracts that will produce fruit and seeds but the main plant dies after flowering and needs to be re-started from seeds.  It should make a great landscape plant for South Florida and thrives in full sun.  It should also make a great plant in a larger container. (Pot size: 4 gallon)
