                    Those top two are from @OxfordNick 's seeds - the lower one is 'Musa grande' I think? Has the Musa grown very tall @Lolimac ?

                    .. and looking better than mine this year - the slugs'n'snails have been snacking on them - I must remember to collect some seed & start some more off for next year.

                      Yes the plants I have grown from your seed seem to be worse affected than my other cannas, although they are in a different position in my garden, maybe more sluggy.

                      The Musa is around 5ft tall and a little dishevelled ,it took a heck of a battering from a bad hail storm and those winds but for all that it still looks good to me:dbgrtmb:
