Can someone help me ID this banana tree?

Looking for a possible ID on this banana tree. Pictured is from the original owner as to the size of the tree and then a closer look at the leaf. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks. Red

Re: Outside Basjoo - when did your corms start growing this year?

Mine started to show in early April. Now they stand 24"-30" high. I'm in NC just outside of Asheville. Looking forward to seeing the plants grow big I hope if the winds leave them alone!!

As far as I know, it doesn't matter. I've done both and both have survived in my garage.

I forgot to ask this question in my original post. Should I cut off the blooms that are on the bordelon or just leave them be? Also, does the plant die back after blooming or just keep going? Thanks...
