You will need to bring them indoors for the winter.

Maybe a temporary wire and plastic greenhouse? It is only a few days a year, if I understand you correctly... Heat tape and insulation to save the Pstem... Just thinking out loud... What is the rest of winter like? 1 or 2 degrees C can hurt them some, but it doesn't seem to with mine.. Got down to 32.7 F ( .388 C ) a couple weeks ago and my Brazilian and Namwah showed no signs of damage. Nor did the SH 3640. All were established plants with no protection. Roofs had frost as did spots in yards. I saw a post on here of a guy in northern California left his Namwah out in 23 degrees F. ( -5 C ) and the stems made it and kept growing the next year. He claimed they froze several times but that was the coldest night.
All that said, maybe save a pup inside just in case and test them out next winter and see. Let us know what happens here, of course.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.

Suggest you do what I do in North Texas. Trim it down, take off the leaves and dig them up shake off a bit of earth. Then stand them in a frost free place, a garage is perfect. once frost is is gone replant in the ground and after a few weeks new leaves comes out. Only way if you want to get bananas. Otherwise most of them come back from the ground but you will never see bananas....

All varieties.... you are only limited to the area you can keep them in the winter.
Most plants take up the area of a small room...6x6....for a single small plant.


All plants mentioned are over 8+ feet.
Do you have the area to grow the plants you want..bananas take a large footprint in a grow environment.


Youtube offers great videos also ....keyword( indoor bananas)
