I'm debating taking in some soon to be discarded banana plants, variety unknown. The RV park my mother works at has some plants that they have never bothered to protect. The way they see it, if the banana plants are protected during the winter months, then they're fairly unsightly and not much of a boon to their winter residents, the busiest time of year for them. Then again, neither are brown and frost burned leaves. So they are thinking of just digging them up and getting rid of them. Looking at my 'yard' there really aren't a whole lot of options for me to put a 'nana tree or two. And the 'nana trees will add a very tropical look to my otherwise sub-tropical, 'Florida' yard. One of the spots where I might be able to get away with planting some is in a corner where my lanai connects to my south-facing wall.
Basically right here, though it doesn't exactly look like this now.
So I'm thinking I might tuck them back near my rain barrel and flank it with them. As they grow, they will for a partial screen for the barrel. But I'm wondering about spacing how close can I tuck them toward the lanai and house walls and get away with it?
