Stunningly beautiful making a feature point in your garden. The Velvet Pink banana from Southeast Asia is an elegant medium-sized (to 5' tall) ornamental banana that suckers freely. The colourful dark pink inflorescence and fuzzy pink fruits are great for flower arrangements. Makes a fantastic container plant. It likes rich soil and regular applications of fertilizer during the spring and summer. Keep well watered during hot periods. It prefers medium shade, but tolerates sun. Makes a nice focal point for a tropical or subtropical patio or courtyard. Fruits are three inches long, pink and fuzzy. Although it is often grown for ornamental purposes, the pink, sweet flesh can be eaten.
