Many gardeners don’t know that there is a special Banana plant that can be grown in the ground just about anywhere in the country, the Musa basjoo. This super fast growing plant needs nothing more than a very sunny location and loads of water to thrive. It is exceptional in the ground to bring a look of the tropics to your garden, or in containers on your patio or porch. It is even an excellent house plant that can be grown inside all year long! After a few years your plant may even produce some (inedible) bananas on your plant, a real delight. For those in cold weather regions, make sure to add a thick layer of mulch before winter to keep it warm.
