*Update* We are currently out of stock on the Musa Basjoo Banana Trees.
It’s unheard of! Here in the greater Toronto area, including Oakville, Mississauga, Milton and Georgetown, we get snow, and frost, and we have a definite cold season. So how could a person who lives here grow a banana tree outside? Well, at Jade Gardens and Greenhouses, we have a variety of banana tree common to Japan, called Musa Basjoo and this type of banana tree is winter hardy. We do sell this plant as an indoor tropical plant and we won’t guarantee it’s return, but we’ve heard great feedback that this variety can make it outside year round. It needs full sun, and you definitely need to mulch it, but the reports are positive. We’re going to try wintering one outside this coming winter and we’ll be sure to report back if its true.
