Is It Red Or Orange?


It belongs to the family of Musa Ornata (Bronze Banana). It is  highly attractive and is considered as an ornamental plant. Its leaves are long and wide with an orange mid rib running the length of the leaves. Its bloom is a bronze/orange that unfurls its blooming bract to reveal tiny banana like cream-colored flower.

This is the second time I’ve seen an ornamental banana blossom with this bright orange color, the other one is in a lovely pinkish /purple shade and grows like this too.  Our village janitor planted several of these and they are all in bloom , alongside red  and yellow Canna flowers.

About arlene

It's been some years since I started this blog. Supposedly, it was only to share my plight as a cancer patient and survivor but over the years it has somehow evolved into something personal about my life and my family. So really glad to have met you all wonderful people out there. Someone commented once that he liked the title of this blog, Dreams and Escapes. Dream on, there are more things in life than we really think. Be happy, you only live once. Sometimes you also need an escape from the vicissitudes of life and this blog helps me cope. Welcome. Feel free to leave your comments, I do welcome them.
