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!

    Red Leaf Banana

    It was easy to order and the banana arrived quickly and in excellent health. It has only been in the ground for a couple of weeks and is already sending up beautiful new red and green leaves. I would definitely order from FastGrowingTrees again.
