An Ornamental Banana with Great Cold-Hardiness

Why Red Abyssinian Banana Trees?

Add flair to your garden with the Red Abyssinian Banana Tree. This exotic tropical plant is a hardy variety that can withstand cooler temperatures with ease. Growing tall, with lush, tropical foliage, the Red Abyssinian Banana will add character and volume to your landscape, indoors or out.

Also called the Snow Banana, Red Banana or Ensete Banana Tree, this features huge leaves with unique red and green hues that will intensify in full sun. It’s ideal for growing zones 8-11, with a fast growth rate. And since it's not a true banana, the Red Abyssinian Banana Tree isn’t grown for edible fruit but rather as an ornamental plant.

Perfect when planted in the ground in warmer climates, or in a container in cooler areas, the Red Abyssinian Banana Tree will add lush, tropical looks wherever it's placed. It's ideal for patios, poolsides and other areas with full sun. Just be sure to move your Red Abyssinian Banana Tree indoors in the winter if you live in a zone colder than Zone 8.

If you’re looking to make a bold subtropical statement in your garden, the Red Abyssinian Banana Tree is the perfect choice. Get yours today!

    Love my plants

    I ordered plants and when they came they were pack very well. All plants looked wonderful we are expecting a few real cold days 24. After that there in the ground. And the prices are good.

    Red Banana Tree

    I didn't have any luck so far. My first tree I received had been dropped/ slightly crushed. I believe the stock is damaged. The pant was separated from the pot and dirt was everywhere, I repotted it anyways hoping to nurse it back you health, over 2 weeks Every leaf had turned brown and died, and the stock is soft and mushy. I had immediately reported the status of the plant via the Chat function, but I realized It was probably not goin to survive, I sent in pictures and was sent a second tree, which was worse than the first one. this one the pot had slid in the box and completely crushed the tree. the stock has folded about 3 times. I realize shipping is out of your hands, the plants I received looked to be healthy when boxed. So I sent in pictures of the second Red Banana Tree, waiting to hear anything about a replacement tree. I would be happy to receive one undamaged, I would even pay extra to help ensure shipping didn't kill these tree's. But over all I believe you have a very good healthy plant nursery, and I'm hopeful to get one in time for it to get somewhat adjusted before I have to store it this winter.
