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.

It's Easy to Plant your Cold Hardy Banana Tree

Specific Directions for Cold Hardy Banana Tree
Plant your Cold Hardy Banana Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Although Cold Hardy Banana Trees can tolerate shade, they prefer full sunlight. Avoid planting your Cold Hardy Banana Tree in an area the receives a lot of wind.

Before planting your Cold Hardy Banana Tree mix sandy or fine potting mix in with your natural soil. Make sure that your soil is well draining. Keep your soil moist and not over saturated. Don't over water your Cold Hardy Banana Tree or let it sit in standing water.

During the growing season give your Cold Hardy Banana Tree every two weeks and fertilize it with a well balanced organic fertilizer three times during the growing season. We recommend a 28-8-16 fertilizer.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cold Hardy Banana Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Cold Hardy Banana Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Cold Hardy Banana Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

WOW!!!
When I received these they looked sad and limp (I'm sure it was the shipping stress). Having purchased from them before, I repotted them and waited for the magic to happen. I wish I could post pics of when they arrived and how they look a couple months later! They are beautiful. Not just saying it, I am shocked at how well they are doing and how FAST they are growing. I like this company! Every thing I've ordered has done great and grown nicely.

Couldn't believe my eyes!
I live with my daughter in NW Ohio. My daughter is a person who likes her landscape to look very different from all the other houses on the golf course. I had been searching the internet fro something very different and happened onto this website. I ordered 3 of the banana trees. I was amazed at how rapidly they grew leaves. It seems as though a new leaf develops about every 1 1/2 days. We are really please with these. I have had neighbors comment on how they make them feel "tropical". I think we will order more if they survive the winter.

Thanks so much for contacting me about the Banana Tree. I cant say enough about your company. The trees that you have sent to me are healthy and growing very nicely. It is nice to know that when I order something that I get what I have paid for. I cannot begin to tell you the garbage I have received from the two companies on QVC. Thanks so much also for having your trees packed so nicely. I am used to having trees thrown in boxes with no protection whatsoever. I will recommend your company very highly. Again, thanks so much

So far the banana trees are doing well in the ground with the organic soil in the green bag that was purchased from Walmart. I have not mulched them yet and watered well the first four days and after that they took root and now are growing like a weed. I will mulch before winter sets in.

I really enjoy watching them mature, they are easy and grew fairly quick for only having them a few months.
To my understanding they will dye back and grow even taller next year.
I do have some that will produce bananas however they are very slow growing.
Very nice tree and my one tree frog agrees too

They perform!
I put 2 of mine in some large planters on my covered front porch with a eastern exposure and the 3rd in a large pot out in the open on my totally exposed new patio with full afternoon sun southern exposure. The 2 on the front porch are gorgeous, full and big. The one on the back patio is doing quite well but is much smaller. I think partly due to the scorching summer we are having. My assessment is that they like sunny warm weather, but are better when protected from too much direct afternoon sun. I love them and think they are beautiful, thanks!

I absolutely love my banana tree. At first it grew slowly, but after a couple of weeks it became this massive tall plant with enormous leaves. My only regret is that I didn't plant it into the ground. I will have to buy more in order to see how it does during the winter. I can't wait until next Spring.

So far, so good
I've only had it about a month now, but it appears to have started growing almost immediately. Literally within a day or 2 after planting. I can't comment on it's cold hardiness until next spring. I've been told after the first frost to cut it down to ground level then cover it with mulch and plastic until it starts growing in the spring. Don't let it rot down to the ground as the roots will rot as well, killing the plant. Can't wait to see it after a full season next year (2016).

As advertised
My Musa is doing very well in its first summer!! It was about 18" tall when I received it (and in very good condition), planted it in our TN red-clay soil in a large hole as the instructions suggested in the 2nd week of April. It's now about 6' tall and sprouting a new leaf about every third day. I've watered it pretty heavily and it seems to really like the hot weather. We'll see how it does this winter in zone 7a. I plan to cut it back to the ground and mulch it heavily.

Shipped and arrived quickly and trees were healthy. They were planted about two weeks after banana trees I had put in the basement to winter over. They have grown slowly. Past week (it has finally gotten hot here in southern Ohio) they seem to be growing faster. As long as they stay healthy and survive the winter, I will be happy.

Do I Have to cover the banana trees in the winter in New Jersey and if yes how do I do it?
sandi s on Oct 6, 2014
Best Answer: Proper care just after your Basjoo experiences its first frost is key to promote healthy growth. After the initial frost, trim back the hardy banana to the ground. Allowing the tree to rot back naturally is not advisable as the rot can spread to the root system. Next, cover the plant area with about 6 inches of mulch. Finally, place and secure a plastic sheet over the mulch, ensuring the mulch stays dry to avoid the possibility of root rot. Remove the plastic and most of the mulch in the early spring prior to the start of any growth. The tree will begin its quick growth when the ground becomes warm enough.

I bought this plant last year and it was looking GREAT - it was probably 4-5 feet! I live in Michigan, so our fall begins in mid-late October. My tree fell completely to the ground then - almost overnight! Do you think it died - or do you think its roots are strong enough to grow back ? Thanks!
Nicole S on Jan 12, 2015
Best Answer: If you cover it with mulch and protect it from freezing winter temperatures it could come back. You may want to consider carefully digging the plant up and placing it indoors by a large sunny window.

can you dig up the ones that come up around the main plant and transplant them ?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
Best Answer: Yes you can dig up and transplant if you get enough of it's own root system in the off shoot. This should also be done once the shoot is at least a foot tall. The newly planted shoot will likely go through a period of shock but should recover as long as you get it done before going into winter dormancy. I wouldn't transplant after September.

How close can you plant them to your house? Also since they like water do you have to be careful how close they are to your septic like willows?
Keon G on Dec 29, 2014
Best Answer: You can plant this tree about 5 feet away from your home. The foliage can spread out 5 or more feet. This tree should be planted about 15 feet away from septic tanks, and doesn't have aggressive roots like willows.

How often do I water this plant? I keep it in doors and I also use a heat lamp.

Jacque B on Dec 11, 2014
Best Answer: The Basjoo, like other hardy banana trees love moist, well-draining soil. This is imperative to ensure and maintain proper health as wet soil will promote plant and root rot. With the correct soil composition, you’re likely to find yourself watering your Basjoo more often than other plants in your garden.

will the leaves ever die off in zones 8 or 9? or if an occasional frost hits them?
Bruce on Nov 29, 2014
Best Answer: Keep your soil moist, but not over saturated. Check on your soil once a week to see if your tree needs more water or not. You tree may also benefit from being misted by a spray bottle once daily.

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.





Most Fruiting Plants are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
