Dwarf Nam Wah Banana Tree

Availability: Out of stock

Unique and gorgeous ornamental tropical evergreen, the Dwarf Nam Wah Banana Tree (Musa acuminata ‘Dwarf Nam Wah’) is a fantastic miniature fruit tree for home, garden porch or patio! Huge foliage and regular-sized fruit with a creamy sweet flavor when cooked or eaten fresh!

Bright green foliage and pinkish stems look fantastic all year round and grow quickly. These large leaves add coarse texture and tropical elements to those lucky enough to live in warm temperate climates. Northern gardeners can keep these plants in planters or pots for their patio, and then bring them indoors for the winter months.

Dwarf Banana Trees will produce flowers and fruit in the right environment, each cluster full of large bananas with a creamy, sweet fruit perfect for fresh eating and adding to your breakfast fare, baked goods and desserts! And there’s nothing quite like homegrown fruit that blows away anything you’ll find at the grocery store.

Planting and Application:

Nam Wah Bananas add an exotic element to your balcony, porch or patio, whether in the ground or in a planter, making them very versatile living design elements. Add to mixed plantings for texture or in groupings for privacy and screening around your seating areas and poolside. You’ll gain a tropical island setting in an instant with these fast-growing plants!

Dwarf Banana Trees are heat tolerant and smaller in stature, so they’re easy to use in about any sunny setting. Provide your banana plants some protection from the elements because banana leaves do get tattered easily.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Banana Trees are easy to care for, just give them a protected place in your landscape or garden where they can receive full to part sun, in a well-drained location that is enriched. Banana plants like consistent moisture access. A bit cold-tolerant, Dwarf Bananas may die back to the ground when exposed to frost but regrow quickly from the roots.

  • Full Sun to Part Shade
  • Moist Enriched Soil
  • Well-Drained Soil or Containers
  • Provide Plenty of Fertility

Dwarf Nam Wah Banana Tree is a fantastic edible ornamental tropical plant that will lend tons of exotic flair to your home garden! Choose dual-purpose plants and trees that give back as much as you give them! Order yours at NatureHills.com!
