Pink Velvet Banana

Seeds of this beautiful and very easy to grow tropical Musa Velvutina or Pink Velvet Banana. Hardy in zones 7-11 and can be planted outside with lots of mulch and frost protection where it needs to be fertilized with slow release fertilizer and kept in full sun. This fast grower doesn't reach grow much taller that 5 feet. I have had mine for five years and none have grown more than five feet. It has beautiful pest free foliage and a burgundy midrib running down the leaf. The flowers are hot pink and the bananas that follow are a beautiful bright pink also. When the inedible fruit totally opens it appears to be a large group of lilies when the banana peels fold back, its quite a sight. This is also a very good house plant in containers and one of the few bananas that will blossom inside.
