Default Ornimental Banana plant for shade area ?

Hello Gang;

Can someone recommend a Orimental banana Plant that does good in the shade

The west side of my house has mostly shade due to the roof of the house & i would like to plant a not to tall ornimental Banana plant in that area .

any ideas appreciated .
Thanks ed..

P.s. do Ornimental Banana Plants Die after Bloom ? Or do they keep going after Bloom ?

Bordelons and Basjoo have done well for me in light shade.
The plants seem to tolerate shade well.

However both plants do even better in full sun.

Hi, I have made good experience with M. yunnanensis, M. sp. yangtse, M. thomsonii and M.itinerans var. formosana and M. itinerans var. kavalanensis for shade areas.

kind regards
