Recommend a variety?
I love my basjoos, but I have a windy bed in which I want to feature a banana, and I don't like the shredded leaf look. Can anyone recommend a sturdy leaf that doesn't shred easily in the wind, that gets at least 7 or 8 feet tall? I'm in zone 6/7, so it will have to come in during the winter - I'd like to store dormant in a cool basement.
For a few years I had a red variegated unnamed variety, but it was very prone to mites, kept pupping, and only topped out at about 4 feet, even when planted in the ground outdoors. I let that one freeze this past fall on purpose!
