This fast-growing banana steals the spotlight with lush tropical foliage!
Includes one pot of Dwarf Red Banana, Musa sumatrana 'Zebrina Rojo'.
This ornamental banana creates a picturesque tropical backdrop on the patio! Splashes of deep burgundy decorate large, vibrant green foliage. A distinctive red trunk and sturdy stems support the exotic leaves, allowing the plant to stand up to strong winds and tolerate moderate cold weather. 'Zebrina Rojo' is a dwarf variety ideal for planting in containers on the patio, deck, or balcony.


Is this for you?
Fast-growing and heat tolerant with impressive foliage. Often called the Blood Leaf Banana, this colorful variety is cherished for its attractive leaves and ornamental appeal.

Ideal for containers on the patio or by the pool! 'Zebrina Rojo' should be enjoyed outdoors during the summer months, then moved indoors to bring a touch of the tropics to your home in winter. Mature plants bear large yellow to red flowers and ornamental red fruits in summer and fall.

Tropical sun-lover creates a shady oasis in the garden! For best color, plant in full sun and fertile soil, and provide plenty of moisture. Bananas planted in containers typically require more frequent watering than those planted in-ground. 'Zebrina Rojo' stands up to windy weather, resists disease, and grows quickly once established.
