Default New to banana trees

Hi All,
I've never planted bananas but after reading about them I'm excited to get started. Looking to plant around a swimming pool along with some palms.

Starting with the Bajoo, a Musella Lasioearpa and maybe a Colocasia Gigantea for kicks just cause the leaves are big.

Any one have comments or advice for me. I'm in Westminster Maryland, just west of Baltimore.

Welcome! The basjoo will most likely do just fine, but you'll want to put the others in pots, and C. gigantea will need to be treated like a tulip or other bulb (ie dig it up in the fall and put it in cold storage until the next season).

Welcome to the organization Ron!

Lorax knows banana growing in cold climates, so if she says treat it this way, do it.

I hail from a warm region and have no cold weather growing experience, but I wish you well in your endevors. Once again, Wlecome!!
