Description

Musa Siam Ruby is possibly the most beautiful Banana ever discovered. I got the original plant out of Thailand in the 90s and got it to a lab. All the plants you see offered came from that one plant that I payed 2000.00 for back then. Although it has been propagated a lot since then it is still a highly prized plant and usually only offered by specialty plant nurseries.  Musa Siam Ruby has deep red leaves with small spots of lime yellow. Siam Ruby can grow to over 9 feet tall. It is an eye catching plant in any tropical displays. The trunks are red which contrast well with other lighter colored plants. I have not seen a more red dramatic foliage plant for the garden.  This plant is a must have for any banana tree lover or variegated freak.
