Hardy Banana (Musa basjoo)

Imagine growing tropical bananas in your outdoor garden as far north as New England. With this Hardy Banana you’ll get a defining tropical look. And, yes with proper mulching, it can withstand temperatures below zero. This extremely vigorous banana grows many feet in a season and in time forms large clumps that can reach up to 13' in height.
