The Dwarf Cavendish Banana, originating in East Asia, is a cool houseplant variety and a fun little plant for an outdoor space as well. Even though it’s unlikely to bear tasty banana fruits when growing indoors, it would be quite an eye candy for any room.
The Musa acuminata’ Dwarf Cavendish’, a variety of the Musa plant, features large, luxuriant paddle-shaped leaves with early maroon or purple markings that fade over time. Despite their delicate nature, these plants are suitable for well-lit sunrooms, conservatories, and garden rooms. Reaching an average height of 8 to 10 feet (2.4-3 meters), the plant’s short stalk produces large green leaves that spiral out from the center, eventually bearing sizable flowers and regular-sized bananas.
