Musa basjoo is good to -20.  That has to be close.  Of course the fruit

Any hardy to zone 5?.... like that would kind of retain their leaves so
you don't have to start from scratch every spring?!?

There was discussion some time ago about the lack of diversity among
bananas, how growers had bred diversity out of them, and that they had
become an endangered species--subject to various diseases.


To this I wish to add--from another list--that an Icelandic scientist
[go figure] on expedition in Micronesia has found and classified 14
new
species of Musa.
