Hi All!

We recently decided to put in a swimming pool, which led to a search for a plant that would grow quickly, put out enough foliage to block the 2-story house next door, and not drop too many leaves or send out runners that will break up the concrete. Bonus points for anything that produces good food and requires minimal effort. That led to us down the banana-tree rabbit hole!

Just wanted to say thanks for all the information folks have provided so far!

Currently growing: 3X Gran Nain, 2X Dwarf Brazilian, 2X Blue Java
Wanted: Pitogo, Dwarf Orinoco, Dwarf Namwah

Welcome to the banana nut club...
If you lose your head and give up, you neither live nor win.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.
