    Description

Musa ornata (Purple Type) - Purple Flowering Banana

This listing is for 10 seeds.

Musa ornata is native to south-east Asia and commonly found in Bangladesh, Burma, and India. This species is widely distributed throughout tropical regions but it is often misnamed. The plant is relatively tolerant and was found in Mauritius (off the coast of Madagascar) before 1805 and must have begun to travel several years before it was botanically described in 1824 on Indian banana plantations. Numerous parts of Mexico have also naturalized the plant, although the seedlings are often offered commercially under a different name.

Plants grow to a height of 1.5 to 3.0 m.  The plants have green foliage with pink tones throughout. The leaves can grow to be 1.8 m long, 360 mm wide and can be used for tropical cut flower arrangements. It produces pink flowers and small, dark pink or crimson fruit. The fruit type is a banana that is seeded and inedible.

It is not hardy and should be treated as a temporary pot plant for garden use in areas that have any frost.  It makes a very good houseplant and will flower readily under these conditions.

Full growing instructions can be found in my shop, the link to this on my Me page.
