Banana Palm (Musaceae spp.)


Banana Palm

Musaceae spp.

Banana Palm trees are guaranteed to lend a tropical flavor into any landscape! Musaceae spp. (botanical name) is an easy to grow tree, featuring large, fleshy, upright stalks topped with soft and smooth arching leaves. Many people love this species because it can be grown indoors or outdoors. With minimal effort, it can grow to be a small to medium sized tree that loves growing in large containers. It is ideal for planting near a pool, around garden ponds, or clustered together in a landscape for an exotic effect that is sure to impress! It is an especially showy tree in the spring, when orange/purple flowers appear, adding a nice contrast with its broadleaf evergreen characteristic.

Besides its good looks, it is easy to see why the Banana Palm is one of the most popular palm trees in the world. As stated earlier, it is super easy to grow, especially when it is protected from high winds and cold. It will require low to moderate water once established, and like most of us, it loves the sun too but can grow just fine in a partly shaded/partial sun area.

Potted or planted, Banana Palms are destined to add an incredibly lush look anywhere. Homeowners will often use potted palms indoors on each side of an entryway or in bright rooms. We love to plant them with other colorful plants in a landscape where its appearance blends in perfectly. We also love to plant them in groupings for use as a tropical hedge! They look great anywhere!

Thanks to its fast growth rate, you will not have to wait too long for it to add a mature, tropical look into your landscape. Of course, if you want instant natural maturity in your yard, we recommend buying as big as you can.
