Re: Musa velutina hardiness.
The gallon sized Musa velutina I have where purchased at the CT store in Courtenay! Small world really.
Ya, shame about the removal of those Musa basjoo in Comox. They would have been a great focal point as they grew larger over the years.
Ensete ventricosum 'Maurellii' pulled through just fine. It did suffer the indignaty of a freak snowfall on April 19 but is doing fine.
I never protect my Musa basjoo and some years the pseudostems stand and other years they collapse. This year they're picking up right where they left off from last season. They are 10' to 12' now and growing like crazy.
