Lovely dwarf (4-5ft) banana which blooms reliably, even indoors once established; it may even bloom in its first year. The exotic flowers (inflorescence) are pink to orange and are followed by bright, velvety, pink bananas. The fruit is edible - but beware, they are full of hard seeds! Rootstock will survive outside with some winter protection. Musa Velutina also makes a good houseplant.
