Default Ice Cream blue java hardiness

Greetings, me again...

There was already a thread on this matter, however it seemed to me that a "final solution" was not reached. Are there new experiences in the field (literally speaking )?

Thanks to all

I doubt that it will have any unsucces in your seaside garden and regarding the hill garden, well, I think no problem there either, just maybe protect the plant for those 2 freezing nights of terrible -1°C. I searched the bananas.org for definite answer, when you asked me and no conclusion. Some things are doomed to by tried over and over again. Wish you luck.

I'm growing it in Zone 9 central/northern CA, with occasional temps below freezing at night. So far, 3 winters in the cold rain soaked ground and far from dead... I got over 40 bananas from her last summer, and her pups are looking very lively this spring.

Good luck!

My bananas have been nowhere near as easy to kill as the papayas

I must contribute also. My Ice Cream made through a few nights in the very low 30's without losing any leaves. It was an unusually cold winter for us here in zone 9 Florida. We are only about 3 miles from the ocean so it keeps the temps from staying in the 30's. Allot of the strawberry farmers had substantial losses, however. I would say the Ice Cream tolerates light-temporary freezes overnight, but it must remain between 40-50 degrees during the day for it to stay alive.

I experience several nights of frost during witner where I live near Houston. My IC lost all of it's leaves but the pseudostem made it through just fine, though I did wrap it. Our low was 32 several times this past winter. My IC is now 10-12' tall to the tip of the tallest leaf.

I don't protect mine at all. They are close to the pool though.
