This tropical perennial herb is very easy to grow.  USDA Zones:7-11. Very hardy. Mature size: 4′-6′(H) x 3′-4′(W).  Like all the bananas prefer full sun to partial shade location in moist soil. Pink and yellow flowers in mid spring to early summer.  Fruit is sweet but too seedy to eat.  Propagate by seeds or dividing the plant clumps.  Good for indoor plant.

這種矮性多年生的紫蕉多是種來玩賞用的.  春開粉紅色及黃色花,果實雖甜但種子太多不好入口.  很強健但不甚耐寒.  成熟株高4-6呎,寬幅3-4呎. 全日照到半日照的環境為佳,喜溼潤土壤.  容易以種子或分株來進行繁殖. 是很強健耐寒的熱帶植物.  可室內盆植.
