Ensete ventricosum is well suited to growing in tropical garden schemes, bearing giant, jungle-like paddles of rich red and green leaves from its thick, leafy trunk.
Ensete ventricosum is extremely fast growing, and will quickly grow into a space, as the focal point of the display. For best results, grow in a warm sunny, sheltered spot, away from strong winds.
Although not winter hardy, it is possible to move the plant into the house during the cold months. If you need any overwintering advice we can always help.
These have been recently been re- potted into 9cm pots.
We have also included a photo of one of our mature Ensete ventricosum Maurelli from last year.
