Q. Purple Banana Plants

Last year I planted two purple banana plants. They were very small. At the end of the summer they both grew about 6 feet tall. I asked the gardener how do I keep them and he told me to cut them down and wrap them up which I did. When I uncovered my plants they were dark on the outer leaves so they were cut back with the leaves being very moist and still purple so I assume they are still alive. Should I just wait and give them more time or should they be replaced?


Yes, it seems that the plants are still alive.  I am assuming that the plants are still in pots.  Trim off ony damaged leaves, and bring the pots back into a sunny area.  Water well. You might apply a bit of fertilizer now.  the plants should begin to produce new growth shortly.  Good luck.
