Fruitscaping with Banana Trees

Bananas are the best way to add tropical splendor to your landscape. Lush and fast growing, bananas can be used as a backdrop or as a focal specimen. Create a summer windbreak or privacy screen. Plant a group of 3 to 5 and create an instant shade garden. Mix in elephant ears and gingers for a South Seas paradise.

Bananas will grow and produce fruit regularly in the colder regions of the Lower South (Zones 8B and 9). It takes two things to be successful: a variety that will fruit in 9 months (most varieties take 2 years), and plenty of water and fertilizer. Bananas fruit year round in Zone 10.

The broad, flat leaves of banana trees stand out in the landscape. Plant them in clumps of three to five for a sunny tropical look. They thrive in low wet spots or on the edges of ponds. Add ginger lilies and sago palms for a jungle of your own. Bananas have a very shallow root system and dwarf varieties are suitable for containers. Therefore, you can put them in large planters around your pool or out on the patio.
