Hi - i have been growing a Musa Basjoo for 5 years in Ohio and was wondering if there are any other type of banana that can grow outside year around here? I read where some places claim the Musa Sikkimensis can survive zone 5 then i read somewhere else where zone 7 is the most they can survive protected?
also i bought a banana tree from my local homedepot last year out in the greenhouse they had bout two dozen of them in large pots with normal flowers you plant outside. it has been growing like crazy inside my house. Its either a blood banana or a Brown red banana, i have also heard the Blood banana can live in cold weather as well.
Thanks for any help!
