What Houzz contributors are saying:

One tropical-looking hardy plant I'm psyched to try this year is 'Mekong Giant' banana (Musa intinerans var. xishuangbannaensis 'Mekong Giant'). It's said to be hardy from zone 6 all the way to zone 11. More important, it's rumored grow to 15 feet tall in a single zone 6 growing season. In warmer zones? Up to 40 feet.The secret to this amazing banana's success: It hales from some of the chilliest parts of China. Grow 'Mekong Giant' in full sun to part shade, average to moist soil. Mulch well in fall in colder zones for good measure and give it space — clumps grow 4 to 8 feet wide.
