Go Bananas for This Tropical Banana Plant! Create a colorful, tropical oasis and ornamental appeal in your landscape with the Red Abyssinian Banana Tree. Also known as Snow Banana, Red Banana or Ensete Banana Tree, this rare variety grows tall and lush to jazz up your indoor or outdoor space. With rich red and green leaves that intensify in full sun, the Red Abyssinian Banana Tree has a fast growth rate and is best for Zones 8-11 outside or Zones 4-11 inside. Plant it outdoors in warmer climates to enhance your yard, patio or pool side, or pot it into a container to enjoy in cooler climates. Either way, itll quickly liven your living space! Since the Red Abyssinian Banana Tree isnt a true banana, its grown as a decorative, showy garden addition instead of an edible fruit. Foliage growth emerges from the center of the plant rolled up and unravels to reveal huge, eye-catching leaves that are sure to make a stunning statement. If youre looking to bring your landscape to the next level, choose the Red Abyssinian Banana Tree. Order yours today to take your garden to the tropics! Planting & Care Note: Banana leaves are huge and can sometimes get crinkled in shipping. Simply remove any damaged or worn leaves to stimulate the growth of new leaves. 1. Planting: Bananas can tolerate partial shade, but need at least six hours of sunlight a day. Banana Trees dont like extreme heat, so afternoon shade will be more beneficial for your tree than morning shade. Avoid areas that receive high winds. If you keep it indoors, place your banana tree by a large sunny window. Once youve scouted your planting location, dig a hole thats twice as wide as the pot and just as deep. Place your tree in the hole, and make sure that its level with the surrounding ground and that its standing straight up. Gently back fill the hole, tamping down to prevent air pockets and give your tree a long, slow drink of water. Finally, mulch the planting site to conserve water moisture and keep grass and weeds away from the tree. 2. Watering: Keep your soil moist, but not oversaturated. Water your tree every 2 to 3 days during the summer, and every few weeks in the winter, depending on your climate. Warmer areas that are more prone to drought will require water more frequently. If your tree is in a shady area, it will most likely require less water. But if you're not sure when to water your tree, simply check the soil about 2 inches down -if the soil is dry here, it's time to water. 3. Fertilizing: Give your tree a well-balanced organic fertilizer once a month during the growing season. Fertilizer will have a recommended dose for the size of your tree on the back of the package. We recommend giving your tree half of that dose for best results. | 3 Gallon - Red Abyssinian Banana Tree - Go Bananas for This Tropical Banana Plant See how our 30 Day Happy & Healthy Gaurantee compares to Garden Goods Direct, Lowe's.
