Looking for bananas that are hardy to zone 7 like Musa basjoo, Musa 'Helen's Hybrid' and Musa sikkimensis 'Bengal Tiger'. If anyone has any pups, please check out my trade list. Even though I live in zone 8, we sometimes have zone 7 winters and I don't want to have to dig them up.

Here's a link to my trade list - just updated it today. I have lots of small rooted cuttings of the Tropical Hibiscus in my list.

Banana's definitely can't take zone 4 but some survive quite well in zone 7 ... anything lower and you have to dig them up for the winter.
