£54.99 inc. VAT

SKU: VH-ENSVM Category:


Ensete ventricosum ‘Maurelii,’ commonly known as the Abyssinian Banana or Red Abyssinian Banana, thrives in the UK with proper care. This striking ornamental plant boasts large, burgundy-red leaves, creating a tropical ambiance adding a dramatic touch to gardens with its large, paddle-shaped leaves that can reach up to 10 feet in length. To cultivate ‘Maurelii’ successfully, plant it in well-draining, fertile soil with added organic matter. Choose a sunny location sheltered from strong winds, as the broad leaves are susceptible to damage. Regular watering is essential, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged. In cooler climates, potted specimens can be brought indoors during winter. With these considerations, ‘Maurelii’ adds a touch of exotic allure to UK gardens.
