Musa coccinea uranoscopus Red Banana 10 seeds
Seeds from this and very easy to grow tropical Musa coccinea uranoscopus or Red Banana. Hardy to zones 7 to 11 and can be planted outside with lots of mulch and frost protection. Outside it needs to be fertilized with slow release fertilizer and kept in full sun. This fast grower does not grow much taller that 5 feet. I have had mine for five years and it has not grown more than five feet. It has pest free foliage and a burgundy midrib running down the leaf. The red flowers are followed by red bananas that are not edible, just to look at. This is also a very good house plant and one of the few bananas that will blossom inside. This easy to grow plant is very good in containers also.
