Pro Tip: Winterization is ideal for zones 5 and 6. Simply trim your Basjoo off at the ground after the first frost and mulch well to protect the roots.

Caring for Basjoo Banana Tree

Basjoo Bananas prefer moist, well-draining soil. Water deeply when the soil begins to dry out. Bananas thrive in full sun, but can tolerate part sun as well. Add our balanced, slow release fertilizer when planting, in early spring, and late summer for best results. When grown in containers, fertilize up to 4 times per year.

In climates where the foliage gets cold damaged, simply prune back the dead foliage to allow new growth to emerge. Mulching this plant in will help the soil retain moisture and protect the plant in winter. Zones 5 and 6 may find it best to prune this tree back all the way to the ground after the first frost and mulch heavily (about 6 inches) to protect the roots.

Basjoo Bananas are hardy in zones 5-11. Cooler climates can plant in containers and move them inside in the winter to enjoy them year after year.

Banana plants are deer resistant.

Landscape ideas
The Basjoo Banana tree adds a tropical look and stunning contrast to traditional plants. Banana plants look beautiful around pools and patios. Plant in groups of 3 or 5 to create a tropical paradise. This exotic plant looks fantastic in containers and is ideal for use as a patio plant. You can even grow your Basjoo banana tree indoors next to a sunny window!
