Description

First discovered in the Louisiana town of Bordelonville, this cultivar slightly resembles Musa Acuminata ssp. Zebrina, the blood banana. Large ornamental foliage has maroon splotches on the upper surface and even more maroon on the underside. This cultivar also grows taller so it has more impact. Readily produces flowers and makes seeded, inedible fruit, wich are also ornamental.
