Botanical Name:  Michelia figo

Common Name:  Banana Shrub

Nope, this isn’t a fruit-bearing banana plant, but it is an evergreen shrub that was very popular back in the Victorian days and blooms flowers that smell like bananas! In the warm months the flowers are a creamy white color but when cooler weather comes in they turn more yellow. She blooms off and on throughout the year. She’s a moderate grower to about 15′ tall x 10′ wide, so give her room to grow. Because she doesn’t grow extremely fast, she also does well in large containers. Full to part sun.

Zones 8 – 10

Florida Friendly Plant
