Garden Journal

 

Some things in life are worth any amount of trouble and the red leaved banana, Ensete ventricosum ‘Maurelii’ is one of those things. The huge ‘elephants ear’ leaves have stunning deep red undersides, setting them apart from any other foliage in the garden. Frost tender, this plant will not survive an Irish winter in most gardens without protection, so they need to be lifted when the first chill of autumn arrives in late October. If they have been grown in the borders, I pot them up and wrap in fleece and then pop them into the corner of a greenhouse, keeping them fairly dry for the winter.
