Plants are about 8-10 ft of stem. Light colored, looks like a common banana plant.

That would be nice!!
I would really like to get a positive id. I originally thought it was a Orinoco but I think it may be something else. No special features to plant or bloom just a regular looking banana plant.

They are 'Ice Cream'/'Blue Java', not 'Orinoco'.

WOW .... that is the most blue that I've seen on pics of the blue Java and not be photo-shopped. .... My blue Javas only have a light coating of the blue coloring. I think the rains may be washing off some of the blue. .... Anyway you will be doing a taste test soon.

Ok blue java it is. Thanks.
Well this is one of my original plants, have had it maybe 12 years. This will be first banana to make it to the end. This plant has come back through some of the coldest winters and always grows tall. Itís the one plant I can always count on showing up the next spring.
