Banana Little Prince, Musa
Due to its compactness Little Prince is ideally suited as a houseplant and as a tropical accent in the garden or container. Little Prince is an extremely dwarf banana, selected for its compact size and thick foliage. The maximum height for this variety is between 24 and 30 inches, which makes Little Prince the shortest banana available on the market (compare to‘Dwarf Cavendish at 8-10 feet, and Super Dwarf Cavendish at 4-6 feet). The thick green foliage also allows for improved resistance to leaf shred caused by winds - a common problem for all bananas. A true indoor/outdoor plant: best for gardeners brings the plant into the home or conservatory for the winter.
