A cold-hardy banana that sports a massive pseudo-trunk to 4,5m (14ft) tall and 45cm (18in.) in diameter, tinged with red, and purple new leaves and leaf-midribs.
Trails in the UK show that this is very root hardy being able to take hard frost. However, stems require fleecing even for mild frosts and should be kept dry throughout our long winter months.
