One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

In my own defense, the bud is only about the size of a football...
...and it is eleven or twelve feet in the air and I have terrible vision. Nancy and Julie noticed it today, Carole saw it yesterday and Angela noticed it last week. Why is the father always the last to know? Anyway it is cool that this Musa 'Basjoo' is flowering in the open garden in Washington DC. Of course we have last year's non-winter to thank. Maybe next year we can flower Musa itinerans or M. sikkimensis, or both! Probably not both.
