    Pennsylvania Banana Trees

    I bought the original 3 banana trees off Ebay several years ago. They were advertised as cold tolerant for my zone so I thought I would try them. As suggested they lived their first winter in the house, but we planted them in late spring of 2011. They were heavily mulched for winter and this year they reached the roof line and multiplied like crazy. We will divide them next spring. A little bit of the tropics in Pennsylvania.Name:  Banana Trees Oct 2012.jpg

    How fun to grow! Will they ever get fruit or are they decorative only?

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    They will eventually get fruit, but it is not the edible kind.

    We had bananas in our yard in Coral Gables. They were the sweetest things you can imagine enjoying. They spread by rhizomes so I suggest you moves them all as they look too close to your house. They really are tropical looking, aren't they? Enjoy!
