This hardy banana makes an excellent addition to the subtropical border or architectural planting scheme. It forms a strong vigorous growing green foliage plant with large oval leaves that have burgundy markings. It is tolerant of most growing conditions, although it will produce the best display if planted on a moisture-retentive but free-draining soil. It tolerates windy conditions and can be grown in the cool greenhouse or sheltered border. Plants can be raised from seed sown in spring, although they can be slow to germinate.
