IS EVERYONE ENJOYING their last few weeks of gardening? September is really a gorgeous month, weather-wise, isn't it?
The photo below, a drive-by, is the entrance to a new student housing facility. The grounds were just landscaped and I found it interesting that they chose to use hardy bananas (Musa basjoo). Although I've seen this plant in many home landscapes, I don't believe I've ever seen it used commercially. I found it interesting. Have you seen this plant among commercial landscapes?
