Default Cold hardiness of plain green Balbisiana?

Anybody know the cold hardiness of plain green Musa Balbisiana, is it comparable to Thai black?

I have a M.Basjoo x M.Balbisiana of the Upham Giant Basjoo lineage and have no problems with it.

There are a few of these mats in Southwest Ohio. Zone 5-6 and no problems with them that I know of.
I know it is not 100% M.Balbisiana but it is half an answer to your question.
It qualifies for a free shrug.

You're too late, I gave away my extra seedlings, and these guys dont pup very well. I am keeping the last 5 seedlings to build up my stock. Hopefully some year I will get pups.
