Huge price reduction for slightly damaged plants. The plants for sale have nice roots systems and were repotted a couple months ago. They have already started to prepare for winter by dropping some leaves. This is a hardy variety that can be brought indoors for winter or left outside in most of central or south Texas (reportedly down to 15 degrees). Bananas that have died down for the winter should be cut back in the spring so that new growth can emerge.
Dwarf Brazilian Banana
Fast growing sweet banana variety grows up to 10-15' tall, is tolerant of poor soil, and can be grown in full shade or sun. This versatile banana is suitable for growing in-ground or in containers, requires less water than other Hawaiian varieties, and is one of the most cold hardy of the edible bananas, tolerating temperatures to 15°. Dwarf Brazilian Bananas are prized for their sweetness and can be used in the same way as the standard Cavendish.
The leaves of the Dwarf Brazilian Banana can reach 3 feet in length and range in color from bright clover green to deep forest green. They are highly wind tolerant, making this banana a great option for open areas with little protection from wind, row plantings to provide quick coverage for privacy, or as a focal piece for a patio.
