Where did this plant come from?

I'm by no means an expert, but ...
It looks like the native banana here in South Alabama my wife calls "water bananas" that grows all over. We had several about 10 years ago that were fruiting at about 12-15 feet. I don't know if the fruit was edible as they were all destroyed by the 2 hurricanes (Erin and Opal) we got that year. They are pretty cold-tolerant and always came back after winter.

It came from a local nursery, and was labeled "Banana". I inquired as to which variety, and he said it was "Ice Cream", but based on my limited experience, it does not look like that variety. I saw another one like it on the lot flowering with a purple-ish/red flower at a height of about 6'.

The pseudostem looks too thin to be an "Ice Cream".Interesting to see which variety it might be.I will vote for an ornata variety, hence the thin pseudostem.
