Angry Re: Musa velutina hardiness.

I have not seen any sign of my velutina since I removed the mulch at the end of April. My basjoo are now over 6 ft. tall. I'm discouraged. I planted it last year near the house in a location where dahlia come back (and that's not supposed to happen here). I had the main plant and 4 pups, which I cut at around 12". Have to try again, unless anyone thinks I still have a chance for them to show? My hedychium ginger just popped out from last year, so maybe I still should hope! Still waiting on my Illustris and amorphophallus konjac.
