Ensete ventricosum ‘Maurelii’ (Abyssinian Banana)
€12.99 “Price excl. VAT: €11.44”
Despite its sensitive, tender nature, the Abyssinian Banana, Ensete ventricosum, is becoming increasingly popular as a summer bedding plant in Ireland. It’s well suited to growing in tropical garden schemes, bearing giant, jungle-like paddles of rich red and green leaves from its thick, leafy trunk.
Ensete ventricosum is extremely fast growing, and will quickly grow into a space, as the focal point of the display. For best results, grow in a warm sunny, sheltered spot, away from strong winds, which can damage the leaves and make them look unsightly. Water regularly and feed with a nitrogen-rich fertiliser once a fortnight.
Supplied in a 17cm pot
