Description

Musa sikkimensis is very cold hardy, similar hardiness to Musa basjoo. Also called Darjeeling banana, is a species of the genus Musa. It is one of the highest altitude banana species. The plant is robust and about 4 m tall. Flowering and fruiting takes place from October to April.

An invaluable ornamental plant. Though this plant is tropical, we use it liberally in planters around our home in the summer, as the foliage is unbeatable, and provides a lush, tropical look to the gardens. Plant bold red annuals below the Banana, for a colorful display. Plants can be started from seed each season, though we prefer to bring the plants in and place them in a sunny window for the winter. Leaves can be cut back to reduce the size of the plant in winter, as the plants quickly regrow next season.

Type: Tropical, patio or houseplant

Height: Up to 4 meters in tropical locations, or use as an ornamental patio or houseplant

Hardiness zones: 5-9. Though listed as hardy in zone 5, we recommend mulch in winter, for added protection.

Seeds per pack: 8 large seeds

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Before planting, soak the seeds for 12-24 hours. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix and water in. Keep lightly moist. Keep at 20 to 25°C (68 to 77°F). Seeds germinate in 2-6 months.
