When I think of the tropics, I think of banana trees. And these big, lush beauties give that tropical feel to any landscape.
But the hardy Basjoo can also take winter temperatures down to -20° F when properly mulched.
In fact, its the cold hardiest banana tree you can find... growing as far north as Minnesota... and can grow in all 50 states.
These trees are ornamental banana trees. They give you that tropical feeling, but will not produce fruit.
You'll love how easy it is to add this beautiful plant to your yard. Simply plant it and stand back... in the warmer months it’ll grow 2 feet a week!
Your banana trees have been cultivated in large pots... unlike other nurseries that try to sell them in smaller containers. This means that your Basjoo Banana tree is ready to be planted, and will put on remarkable growth the first growing season.
It only grows up to 10-15 ft. high, so you can pretty much plant it anywhere... even tight spaces.
