Mystery plant

Thanks for the replies. I hope it is the Tower of Jewels. Beautiful plant. It is now just over 3ft tall and seems to be happy in the greenhouse. I will bring it inside in a week or two when it gets colder.

As for the Jacaranda, that's just a baby at the minute. I brought it back in April, it was one of those you can buy in all the local shops in Tenerife in the plastic dome containers. It was about 3 inches and has grown to just over 2ft so far. I will also be bringing this inside for the winter. When it gets stonger and bigger I will plant it in the ground.

I also brought a banana back, no idea what species but I planted it in a 6ft x 4ft contained area (3ft deep, solid concrete floor) which is now 4.5ft from 15cm. It also appears to be reproducing quite happily as there are now 4 additional 2ft - 3ft banana plants shooting up. I have a basa banana in a pot (3.5ft) which I can bring inside. I am hoping that a plastic greenhouse and a couple of old duvets wrapped around the trunk will help them survive the winter.

It normally lives in the greenhouse with my Jacaranda tree.

Can anyone please help me identify this young plant.

I brought it home from Tenerife in April and it was around 3.5 inches. It is currently just over 13 inches now.

I would love to kow what it is, and if I plant it, how tall will it grow, and will it survive the winter?
