Banana Ensete ‘Maurelli’ is a tropical plant known for its large paddle-shaped foliage and sheathing trunk-like structure. Native to East Africa, this plant is also known as Ethiopian Banana and Red Abyssian. It’s bright olive-green, deep-brown, and red-purple ornamental foliage adds an exotic feel to any indoor or outdoor space. Red Banana Abyssian is fast-growing, so plant it in an area with a good amount of growing space.
