Red banana is a perennial cultivar in the Musaceae (banana) family. Named for J. Maurel who drew attention from the French in Ethiopia to the native red-leaved 'banana' looking plant. It is best grown in full sun, with some shade in the hotter portion of the day. Moist soil is a must. However, don't overwater. Locate in a site where the plant receives some protection from strong winds that can damage the leaves. Courtyards, atriums, and walled gardens are ideal.
