The feature that distinguishes the Travellers Tree (Ravenala madagascariensis) from Giant Bird of Paradise and Bananas is its arrangement of leaves. The leaf blade opens in an angle of 90 ° to the leaf stalk and thus forms an accurate ‘fan’ which attracts attention in high wintergardens, living- or office rooms. The unusual name derives from small water-pockets at the leaf base that are said to have saved the live of many a thirsty wanderer. But we can also enjoy the tropical look of the leaves and the eye-catching growth habit of this evergreen relative of Bananas and Ginger. Older plants are decorated with green-yellow flowers. Whereas the Travellers Tree is very widespread in the tropics is hardly is cultivated in our country.
