I inherited a few banana trees from the previous homeowner after I moved into the new house, and had read that some banana trees are ornamental and do not bear any fruit. Luckily for us (and for the bees), a couple of them have been showing off their exotic purple blossoms all summer with beautiful bunches of bananas hanging down. It’s like having a little slice of the tropics in my own backyard!
