Hardy Banana Tree

Withstands temperatures as low as -20°F
Enjoy a beautiful accent of huge banana leaves into your garden design, no matter your garden location, thanks to this incredibly hardy ornamental. It thrives even in regions where temperatures dip as low -20 degrees F, and features long, oblong leaves up to 10' in length. In summer, they're joined by pale yellow to cream blooms. It does not produce edible fruit, grown for its decorative charm instead. Plant it alongside other tropical beauties, like elephant ears, to turn your cool climate garden into lush, tropical oasis. Though it's called a tree, this Hardy Banana is actually an incredibly large perennial. Musa basjoo
