I wouldn't know about that specimen, but, as a former landscaper and garden center manager, it helps to know what your USDA Plant Hardiness Zone is and any micro-climate data you might have (winter temps, wind, freezing rain, etc.). reference: USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map

Looking Orinoco to me, I don't think too many are winter hardy in your zone.

Looks like I am in zone 6b. I need to come up with some kind of portable greenhouse that's heated. I hate to cut them down and really have no place inside to keep them as they are.

Looks like mush basjoo to me. They don't produce edible bananas. If that is what it is, you can leave outside. It will die to the ground but will come back next year.

If those don't turn out to be fruiting or edible bananas, use them to improve your soil, chop & drop... trunks can be transformed into planters that don't require much watering as they decompose over time. Go permaculture soil building.

For sure not a Basjoo.

Looks Namwah-ish to me.

Could you ask this plant to bloom and give us another hint.

Don't know what it is, but it's not Namwah. Midribs are green.
