Banana Leaf

Posted by
Richard Irwin (Belper, United Kingdom) on 29 April 2007 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Not a native of these shores, but I grow various banana plants in my garden every year, and they seem to just survive the winter here in England, which always surprises me each spring when the leaves start growing. By the end of the summer, some get to about 2M tall.

o... love the shadows and the greens. we have plenty of those here. but the leaves are almost always shredded by wind. they grow bulbs and suckers underground so i guess thats how they survive winter. hope it fruits soon! love bananas=P
