Bananas in Vancouver?

Our American friends just can't stop connecting our northerliness with "it must be cold up there". In Vancouver's case, remember the "temperate rainforest" bit? In a protected space between Nelson House and the neighbours, we planted a single banana plant a few years back and now look at our little jungle grove...
