Default Banana flowering, but recovering from frost damage?

check it out

seems like its flowering to me, but here in phoenix the leaves always die back in the winter, i wrapped the stalk a few times with various things and xmas lights during our hard freeze nights and it seems like it survived..

isnt it kind of odd that its flowering with only one leaf? which i think is the flag leaf?

also before the flower emerged i removed its one single pup and planted it in another location, should I not have done that? theres no other pups growing right now? once the thing dies back after fruiting will more pops just emerge from the 'corm' under the soil?
