Great in the House or on the Patio!

Produces small edible bananas!
While we have always admired the big, glossy foliage and bold colors of banana trees, this tropical plant has never been practical for many gardeners. After all, it's hardy only in zone 8 and farther south. And if you try to grow it in container, it soon bursts its bounds or becomes starved for nutrients. That's why this new dwarf variety is so exciting!

Super Dwarf Banana reaches just 4 feet high at maturity, so it's perfect for your nicest flowerpot or tub. But just because it's dwarf doesn't mean that it grows slowly -- it will shoot to full size in no time, with plenty of gorgeous foliage and a mahogany-hued trunk. When young, the stems may even show patches of bright red!

And Super Dwarf Banana is great in any light from full sun to shade, so you can grow it in the house as easily as on the patio or deck. Caring for this tropical tree is a snap, and it's evergreen, so it always looks great.

As if all this weren't enough, it blooms and fruits just like its full-sized cousins! The flowers are smallish and a nice creamy shade of white. It will take several years to set its first crop of fruit, but once it begins, you will enjoy tasty small bananas right from your living room or balcony! And Super Dwarf Banana needs no pollinator, so you need grow only one!

We highly recommend this exceptional tree. It's attractive, easy to care for, and very adaptable to different climates. If you're growing it outdoors, bring it in well before first frost, and do not leave it out at night in spring when there is any chance of an unexpected freeze. Given heat, water, and a loving home, Super Dwarf Banana is ready to become the showpiece of your garden! Zones 8-11. Cannot ship to CAN, AZ, GU, HI, PR, VI.
