Ravenala madagascariensis - Travellers Tree

In Winter a delay in delivery may appear because of night temperature! The weight of the plant in kg corresponds with the capacity of the pot in liter. The displayed gross amount may vary depending on the country of delivery due to different sales tax regulations.

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.
