Default Re: Advice on choosing ornamental nanas for landscape

I'm surprised that musa coccinea isn't popular in Florida. I would think that it would be sold in local nurseries such as Home Depot. In 1987, I grew it in the Chicago area (zone 5) from pseudostem sections bought from a Florida grower. It forms clumps like heliconia and is similarly used in the cut flower trade of Hawaii.
