Description


A giant, jungle-like beauty, Ensete ventricosum Maurelli brings back memories of warmer climates, and creates a bold impact in your summer garden. You will be fascinated, watching each new burgundy-flushed green leaf unfurl, with bright red mid-rib, to wave proudly in the breeze on a red stem. The new foliage creates an attractive shuttlecock-like shape, before stretching out as it matures. Imagine the excitement when you spot clusters of small, cup-shaped flowers and tiny, banana like fruits (these are not poisonous but are unpalatable).. Indigenous to East Africa, this fast-growing perennial is best grown in a warm, sunny and sheltered spot, away from strong winds to prevent leaf damage. Water regularly and feed once a fortnight. A tender perennial, Ensete ventricosum Maurelli will need protection from winter cold, and makes an incredible conservatory plant in a container. Alternatively, in autumn, cut it down and either dig it up, transfer it to a pot and move it indoors, or you can wrap the plants in horticultural fleece. Your Ensete will quickly re-grow in late spring.
