Hello all. Just joined the forum. Bananas are something I would like to add to my pool landscape but I know nothing about them, well I know a little about them. I live about 40 miles north of Dallas Tx.

Welcome aboard, Tx Crinum ! You've landed in the perfect forum for that kind of info. I'm from Taxes (just north of Texas) . Texas is a great place for growing nanners and there are lots of pool-side nanner growers here with everything from Chiquita to Ae Ae and Ruby Siams (one of my Faves).
Just jump right in & you'll learn more than ya ever wanted to know in no time! If ya got any questions about using the forum, just ask away.

From a South Central Texan, Fort Hood!!

I am loving how bananas are doing for me!

I recommend edible bananas too, Dwarf Cavendish & Dwarf Orinoco & Dwarf Namwah are doing the best for me!

Enjoy! ~Cheryl

Welcome. I agree with Eric Siam Ruby is good, it is a good contrast to the color of the pool. Plant near each of the four corners. Or plant on one side, 25 - 50 Super Dwarf Cavendish. This will create an illusion of banana plantation when you are in the pool looking at this side. good luck...

Welcome to! You've definitely come to the right place to learn about bananas....I've already learned a TON in my time here! I'm sure bananas would look great by your pool....they evoke a lovely tropical aura!
Feel the beat from start to stop, dancin' and movin' from bottom to top!
RIP Tog Tan. We love you and will always remember you!
