I thought I had small banana trees when I was digging them up in my boyfriend's back yard but as they grew I see the leaves are growing straight from the stalk and not from a stem which doesn't look like my banana tree. Can someone tell me what I have?

Welcome. :)
Where in the US do you live? That would help towards identifying your plant. I'm guessing somewhere warm...I'm in Michigan and don't recognise it.

The shape and habit of the leaves reminds me most of the Garland Gingers in the genus Hedychium.
