One recent discovery made while walking Lulu the other day was that you can grow actual fruiting bananas in Silver Lake. I happened along this parking strip planting and got to see them doing their thing live and in concert. I was struck at how amazing the big leaves caught the sunlight and lit up as if electrified. The flowers are works of art. Origami unfolding. Under each fold, like a layer cake, is a 'ganache' of buttery yellow flowers. These flowers then evolve into an emerald bounty of banana fruit. So tropical cool!
