Default Re: Musa velutina hardiness.

Thanks for the input regarding Musa velutina. The examples I have are small still and are in one gallon pots. I'll grow them on to a larger size before planting them out. I guess I'll just treat 'em like I do my Musa basjoo. Well maybe not quite, I never winter mulch those. This winter was mild enough that the pseudostems remained, only the leaves got frosted. This year they've picked up right where they left off last season.

Cheers, Barrie.
