Banana - Blue Java

I received my Jave Blue in Early/mid Nov 2020 & already less than 6 months later it has grown to approx 6' tall, very fast growing. A great healthy plant that's loving the sunny, wind protected spot in the garden. Growth slowing down in cooler weather.

Banana - Blue Java

My Blue Java Banana plant came in perfect condition (ofc the leaves had to be cut back in order to make the plant fit in the shipping box but surprisingly only one leaf was cut back.) The plant was packaged safely and beautifully. It was a joy to unboxed.
