Full Product Details

Product Information

Add this dramatic new banana tree to your garden and enjoy a show of strong and impressive leaves.

Also known as Musa sikkimensis, this plant boasts large, ribbed, paddle-like leaves in a superb dark green shade, which is streaked with stripes of maroon red. This red leaf colour remains for longer than that seen on the similar 'Bengal Tiger' sikkimensis variety.

‘Ever Red’ is the perfect centrepiece for a tropical planting scheme, and when mature will feature an impressive, wooded stem.

The thick and strong leaves are thankfully windproof and more colourful and hardy than those seen on other varieties of banana tree.

For best results, this plant will truly thrive when placed in mild areas, when offered some protection, while ‘Ever Red’ will also perform well in containers, making it easy to move around and into a frost-protected area for the cold winter.

Supplied as one established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting.

Top Tips

Over time, your bananas will produce small offsets at the base. These can either be left to form a clump or separated off and grown on.

Care Information

Planting advice for bananas:

  • When growing outdoors, choose a site that is sheltered from the wind both for winter protection and also to prevent leaves being shredded.
  • Plant in late spring, in a well-drained soil, that has been enriched with plenty of organic matter.
  • Once plants are established, water and feed generously through the summer as they are greedy feeders.


When growing bananas in containers:

  • Grow in a soil-based compost, such as John Innes No. 3 with extra grit added to improve drainage.
  • Container-grown plants need ample watering during spring and summer months plus a weekly feed during the spring and summer with a general-purpose liquid feed, or a controlled-release fertiliser.
  • In autumn, over winter plants in a frost-free greenhouse or conservatory and reduce watering and feeding - watering only when on the dry side in winter.

Aftercare advice for your banana trees:

  • Pot on in spring either once a year, or every other year. Increase pot size by 5-7.5cm initially then once established in 30cm pots, increase size by 10-15cm every two to three years.

Pruning advice for bananas:

  • Little pruning is needed. Just cut away old leaves near their base and, when wrapping up plants outdoors for winter, some stems may need to be cut back.
