Banana Heart/Puso ng Saging, Musa Ornata
Musa Ornata is one of more than 50 species of banana, it is usually grown for decorative purposes. It originated in southeast Asia and widely distributed throughout tropical regions. It grows up to 8 to 10 feet and produces pink flowers and small, dark pink or crimson fruit that tends to be inedible. The fruit is a banana that is seeded and also inedible. A fast grower, Musa Ornata provides a lush tropical feel to the garden, inflorescence and fruit are an interesting sight.

The flower is gorgeous even if the fruit is not edible. I find these tropical plants so fascinating.
They resemble our Birds of Paradise. But then I am not an expert on plant/flower names ;-)
Very unique and lovely.
Beautiful bloom! I have seem many banana blooms but I did not realize some were grown for decorative purposes. I learned something new today. Thank you!
This ornament bananas thrive in my tropical country!

Great shot of the banana flower. I think I saw this kind in my hometown.
Hi Luna Miranda,
Found you, and pleased I did...
Now it is my turn... I did not know Banana Trees also happened simply for ornamentation. Musa Ornata is beautiful. The colouring refreshingly... well refreshingly ornate!
The whole effect with huge green leaves, rich pink and dabs of yellow would be thoroughly uplifting, especially considering each colour given will have varying tonal depths to enhance the overall experience to feel.
I'm going to check if available in Australia and happy to grow here... do hope so.
Wow, the banana heart is so... sensual! I've got goose bumps. Excellent shot!
And thank you for visiting :)
what a surprise, bananas. :) Now I know what they look like. :)
