The blood banana is a rare ornamental banana from Indonesia known for its red variegation on its leaves. Mature specimens can grown 6-8 feet tall and add a lush tropical look to any northern garden. Although these are not suitable to be winterized in a cold location, their smaller size makes them ideal for bringing indoors as a houseplant for winter.
Although this is an ornamental variety, the seeded bananas produced by this plant are edible.
These Blood Banana plants are imported from Florida each spring on request for our customers. These must be pre-ordered in advance and will be ready for pick-up/delivery in May 2021.
