Then you need to go dwarf, so Dwarf Namwah.

Hi John,

the red abyssinian (ensete maurellii) is my favorite. The huge leaves and the coloring can't be beat!

12' of greenhouse gets you about 7-8' of trunk, and 4-5' for leaves. So that still leaves you with a dwarf variety.

Perhaps a dwarf cavendish would work for you? They are tasty and not too tall. Williams are tasty, but they get pretty tall.
