Musa basjoo

Japanese Fiber Banana

Japanese Fiber Banana has glossy banana leaves up to 6' long in one season. The fruits of Musa basjoo are not edible, but the plant overwinters in a sheltered location if heavily, deeply mulched (the one time mulch volcanoes are appropriate...).  Per Bruce Crawford, the common name is deceptive because Japanese Fiber Banana is actually native to China.
