Default First Timer Here ... Unsure What I Planted

Hi All,

I planted two banana plants back in the beginning of May. I purchased them from a local garden supply store and the tag did not identify the plant specifically. Only that is was a fast growing banana plant that is cold tolerant. (I live in NE Ohio so cold hardy is a must!) I was looking for basjoo as these seem to be the easiest to care for in my climate but I think I might have something else. I think I have had maybe 4-6 inches of p-stem growth the past three months and they are looking more like Super Dwarf Cavendish in stead. Any help in identifying these would be a great help as the summer is going to start winding down here soon and I am going to need to put together my overwinter plan which will depend on the species. Sorry the pics are kind of far away. These were the only ones I had. Please let me know if you need better pictures and I can take more. Thanks in advance for the help!
