Product Description

The Japanese Fiber Banana Palm Tree - Musa Basjoo
The Musa Basjoo is a green palm-like plant and is the most cold-hardy banana species. The Japanese Fiber banana plant has been known to survive in climates as cold as southern Ontario, Canada, Central New England and the northern border states of the American Midwest, such as Michigan, Wisconsin. It is cold hardy planted in the ground to -5F and with protective mulching, down to -25F. With its banana leaves expanding to 6-8 feet in length on a plant that grows 15-20 feet in a single season, this will not go unnoticed. Even if cut to the ground during cold winters to ensure its survival, this hardiest of banana species will return undeterred, reaching up to 15-20 feet high. Its inflorescence is one of the most beautiful of all bananas. The Musa basjoo is unlikely to flower or fruit in extreme northern areas of its range, but further south, may produce ornamental flowers and small, inedible fruits. They need 9 to 15 months of frost-free conditions to produce a flower stalk. The plant has become popular with gardeners in the past ten years, due its rapid growth, tropical look, and ease of care.
