Musa Dwarf Cavendish - Banana Plant 40cm - 110cm
The Musa Dwarf Cavendish has enormous, paddle-shaped leaves that have a luxuriant quality. Young plants have maroon or purple blotches on their leaves which disappear as the leaf matures. They are ideal for sunrooms, conservatories and garden rooms, as these plants love lots of good light.
Please note, the Musa leaves are fragile and bruise and tear easily, often snapping under their own weight. This is considered part of their charm and new leaves generate extremely quickly.
