Default Musa 'African Red'

Musa 'African Red' is an ornamental banana species that grows 6-8ft tall. The inflorescences are a bright pinkish red. The bees love the flowers. Ours are growing in filtered light and it wet, mucky soil. They are thriving there, real vigorous growers.

A lovely specimen I must agree! Makes me want to run right out and get one. Maybe in a month or two. Thanks for the photos.

Frank,
I saw that picture on the HPST Board...very nice. Why haven't you entered that in the 2009 Photo Contest yet? If it wins (4 will win), it will go in the magazine.

I know for one, they have very tight import regulations, and unlike some places, they actually seem to care and go to fairly impressive lengths to keep plants out that do not have proper certification and inspection.
