Default Can anyone identify this banana plant? (Pics)

I purchased and planted this in April, and it grew slowly until just recently (the fertilizer last month may have helped). Today I was shocked to find that, as small as it is (4 ft), it's putting on a bloom! And my Namwahs and Cavendish, which are much larger, have nothing. It was on sale with no label and I just took a chance, so I have NO idea what it might be. Ideas?

It is one of the many hybrid ornamental varieties out there, can't say exactly until gets a little further along, but probably either 'African Red' or 'Royal Purple', could be another too, keep posting photos.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Hawaii and Washington since 2004.

Keep watering and BABY-ing it; post pics. That's a nice looking little plant for patio landscaping.
