    Banana plants (Musa spp.) are classic tropical foliage plants, small to medium trees often planted in sunny patios for their lush leaves and exotic flair. Of course, the trees can also produce the colorful and popular banana fruit. Some species, like the ice cream plant (Musa acuminata x Musa balbisiana 'Blue Java'), offer both splendid paddle-shaped leaves and sweet, melt-in-your mouth fruit. If you live in a warm region, you might want to add ice cream banana trees to your garden area for a touch of tropical allure. These plants are a fantastic addition to any food garden, but they’re pretty amazing even if you just want a tropical paradise in your yard. The flower is astounding, and the fact that you get fresh fruit from it so much the better. You’ll definitely want to provide full sun conditions for your banana trees. They prefer 8-12 hours of sunlight a day. While they can tolerate partial shade, they just won’t grow as vigorously. So be sure your bananas get ample amounts of sunlight. All bananas love water. You’ll find these tropicals to be thirsty! However, they don’t tolerate standing water anywhere near as well. Ensure your soil is very well-draining and that it doesn’t pool up around the plant during rain.

    Testimonials

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"

    Natalie

    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."

    Matthew

    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"

    Nathaniel

    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"

    Trisha

    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
