I have finally found a winter hardy banana that is doing well in my zone 7 climate. It behaves like a perennial, and comes back from the rhizome every year so far for about 4 years or so. It has yet to flower, though. Are there any bananas that are winter hardy that are also edible? I know I won't be able to dig them up and keep moving them around, as I am barely able to keep up with the few other smaller houseplants.
While I am thinking about it, are there any bananas that will even get big enough to flower in a temperate area? There is supposed to be a variety called lotus, I think, but I am not sure it will work around here.
