I was surprised to see a purple banana tree when I visited a nursery in BDC. I’m not into plants nor funny looking fruits. πŸ˜‰ This banana tree looks more for landscaping use rather than bearing edible bananas! (I’m more into what’s edible).

Lovely plant isn’t it? It’s called musa velutina, a native plant to Assam, northeast India. An ornamental banana with lush green foliage, featuring a striking burgundy midrib.
