Product Details

The Rojo Red Banana is an ornamental banana tree that can transform your patio, pool area, home, or garden into a tropical oasis!  Grab your pina colada and kick your feet up!  

Huge, green leaves striped with a deep maroon red are sure to liven up your landscape.  Dark red stems add even more color and flare.  The Rojo Banana can reach heights up to 8 feet and width up to 6 feet at maturity.  

This banana does not produce fruit, but it will produce jealous gazes from your nosy neighbors!  In fact you could even plant a row of Rojo Bananas as a privacy screen to block those nosy neighbors out!  For a banana hedge, plant your Rojo banana plants about 5 feet apart.

The Rojo Red Banana plant offers unique color and rich texture contrast to traditional plants.  Banana plants look stunning around pools and patios.  Plant in groups of 3 or 5 to create a bold look with tons of color and beauty.  This exotic plant looks fantastic in containers and is ideal for use as a patio plant.  You can even grow your Red Banana plant indoors next to a sunny window!

Rojo Bananas prefer moist soil.  In fact these plants can even grow in wet conditions. Water deeply 1 to 2 times per week for you plant to be at its healthiest. Bananas thrive in full sun, but can tolerant part sun as well.  Add our balanced, slow release fertilizer when planting, in early spring, and late summer for best results.  When grown in containers, fertilizer 4 times per year.  Rojo Bananas are hardy in zones 8-11.  Cooler climates can plant in containers and move them inside in the winter to enjoy them year after year.  Banana plants are deer, pest, and disease resistant.

Spice up your landscape with the tropical look and rich color of the Rojo Red Banana.  Order yours today before they're gone!

Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
