The robust banana plant sports a lush cascade of bright leaves and a single purple blossom. The blossom opens as it grows, revealing rows of small flowers that will turn into fruit under each purple mantle. The plant will rapidly age as its life energy is spent on producing a huge stem of bananas. The painting was commissioned by a Miami collector and prints are available for purchase.
