Joy long been done gone (bananas)

In Baton Rouge, Louisiana banana "trees" were a significant part of childhood. In my youth they were considered none too classy, rather messy, and invasive but... we kids knew that fun lurked.
Leaves could split up into greenback "money". The clumps were often a little rangy compared to the maintained lawns and gardens of our parents.
Orinoco and ornata were the standards then.
In the past 20 years I have acquired a host of others which are available for others to share but you have to come by and help me dig. This includes: saba, siam ruby, basjoo, ornata in a few colors, ?dwarf, orinoco, bordelon, coccinea, and musella , and probably one or two others.
I am also intrigued by aroids and gingers and have several growing about.
It is good to be amongst aficionados (or how exactly do banana nuts refer to ourselves?)
