Never heard of a snow banana???

Ensete Glaucum

I have no experience other than seeds not germinating.

RE: Snow Banana

Ensete Glaucum is the proper name. It is not hardy at all, in spite of its name. Grows well in heat, but Ensete venctricosum is much more tolerant of cool weather.

Thanks for the info!
