Re: Musa velutina hardiness.
I can only speak for myself, but I live in SE TN which is 7a/b, and it has done exceptionally well in my backyard. I use about 3-4" of cypress mulch and they come back bigger and better each year. The reason I have tried to get the seeds out to anyone that wanted to try them, was to try to see just how hardy these little "gems" are. If you want anymore information about mine, pm me and I will try and help you with that and anything else you may need...
IMHO, these bananas would do well for you in your area...
