With its large and colourful paddle like leaves, Ensete Maurelli is a great way to liven up a corner or as a garden centrepiece. It is also great in planters on the patio or deck, fast growing just keep well fed and watered to get the most out of it. Spectacular planted in a group, and simply magnificent on it's own, used as a focal point.
It’s got tough leaves and therefore doesn’t mind a bit of wind in the garden but try to keep it at a minimum of 5 degrees centigrade in winter and restrict the amount of water. As with all Bananas and their relatives, they can survive for long periods with little water if the temperature is low.
