Blood Banana - Musa acuminata Family : Musaceae - Banana family
Note: The cluster of flowers is hidden by large overlapping bracts. Birds are attracted to the flowers.
Blood Banana Zone C
This is a banana species that is excellent for an ornamental planting for its bronze to red variegated leaves and medium-sized trunks. My experience is that it needs semi-shade to grow well. Many birds are attracted to its flowers. More of such species can be planted at certain locations in the park in the future.
