This dwarf, fast-multiplying Indian species is prized as a container plant because of its 5-8' tall size, and like Musa velutina, the clump is adorned in late summer and early fall with upright flower spikes of lilac-purple flower buds that peel open in layers, revealing the golden yellow flowers. Forget eating this seed-filled banana unless your spouse kicks you out of the house without dinner. We are just now trialing this outdoors and have a few extras to share...reports indicate that it is reliable in Zone 8 and possibly further north.
