The banana plant, or musa, is a popular plant when bright green foliage is needed.
In warm areas it is also a very strong perennial that grows quickly and can become quite large.
Though they resemble palm trees, bananas are neither trees nor palms but large-statured perennials. The large light green leaves look as well when grown in a tub as when planted in the ground in warm areas.
