Musa basjoo

Banana - Japanese Fiber

Japanese Fiber Banana has glossy banana leaves up to 6' long in one season. The fruits of Musa basjoo are not edible, but the plant overwinters in a sheltered location if heavily, deeply mulched (the one time mulch volcanoes are appropriate...).  Per Bruce Crawford, the common name is deceptive because Japanese Fiber Banana is actually native to China.
