- The Red Banana or Blood Banana (Musa zebrina) is an ornamental banana tree originally from Indonesia. Gardeners grow the tree for its mottled, red foliage rather than its banana fruit. The plant reaches a short height of four to 10 feet and will grow in USDA hardiness zones eight through 11. The Blood Banana makes an attractive alternative to more common ornamental plants. Though it may appear exotic, the Blood Banana has only basic care requirements.
