An ornamental Banana tree is related to other tropical plants like the Bird-of-Paradise and the Canna Lily. There are three different genera of banana in the Musaceae family. These are the Ensete, Musa and Musella. Most banana plants need warm weather in order to thrive. Planting banana plants next to buildings or asphalt driveways will help provide a little extra heat during the colder months. When planting your hardy banana tree, it is important that you choose an area that is somewhat protected by wind as heavy winds can cause the leaves of a banana plant to tear, although this will not damage the health of the plant
