Musa sikkimensis Red Tiger
This Banana is a good variety with red blotches running through large green leaves. Produces a nice tall stem in one season and produces huge leaves giving a wonderful tropical feel to your garden.
Requires a heavy mulch over Winter and is best moved to a frost free area over Winter to maintain the trunk (pseudostem). If you plan on over Wintering this plant in the border it is best to remove the stem before the first frosts and mulch heavily.
Approximate height of plant on collection is 2m+
Grown in a 1L pot, approx 60cm tall with an overwintered pseudostem, leaves may be trimmed for posting
