The Abyssinian banana has strong, stiff, green leaves with a bold red midrib and a white bloom on the undersides. In its native home it can reach huge proportions forming a trunk over 3ft in diameter! Not hardy here in the UK (it will stand only light frosts) it is normally grown as fresh summer bedding each year or is over-wintered in a bright frost-free place to produce large striking plants. In the summer this banana can produce a new leaf every week.
