Just got 3 myself. Lady at the store said it will go about 15ft and similar to basjoo. I like the red so I dont mind how tall they go. Just going to put them in today and hope they overwinter. Im sure they will turn out just beautiful

Any one have a picture of one? I searched the web, and found no info on it at. What does it look like?

It was sold in the UK as Red Musa basjoo. It proved to just be a red stemmed banana, with no cold hardiness.

tropicallvr are you saying that it is a tropical variety that won't take a frost? If so I guess I'll be packing them away with the others. I'll leave one in the ground to see what happens over winter, at $3.33 each I don't mind experimenting.
Glenik are you in the Chilliwack area? I'd be interested to know if yours make it through the upcoming winter and what you do for winter protection.

Yeah, they seem to be a tropical type from what others have found out by testing it, but like you said at that price it's a great deal for any banana.
