Scientific Name: Ensete ventricosum ‘Maurelii’ (fmr. Musa maurelii)

Common Names: Maurelii Red Banana, Abyssinian banana

Overview: Create a tropical paradise in your own backyard with Ensete ventricosum ‘Maurelii’, also known as the Red Abyssinian Banana. This stunning ornamental plant is prized for its large, robust leaves that brandish a dramatic fusion of deep green and striking red hues, bringing an instant exotic flair to any setting. Unlike its fruit-bearing relatives, ‘Maurelii’ is grown for its ornamental appeal, which is characterized by its rapid growth and towering presence, potentially reaching up to 10-12 feet tall. Ideal for creating a lush, tropical look in temperate climates, it thrives in full sun to partial shade and enjoys moist, well-drained soil. While not winter-hardy, it can be overwintered indoors in colder regions. ‘Maurelii’ makes a breathtaking focal point in any garden, container, or as a stately lining along driveways.

    Buying another one after I had to leave the first behind. I plantvine has the best value for money on these guys. Not too worried about the size as I know these grow a new leaf every week. A little yellow and tearing on the leaves but healthy happy plant nonetheless

    Arrived exactly on time, 12 days after purchase. Great price for a tall, healthy plant and impressive packaging. The color is already starting to come back to that healthy red and green after resting from transit.
