AED250.00 – AED650.00
Ravenala madagascariensis, commonly known as the Traveler’s Palm or Traveler’s Tree, is a striking tropical plant native to Madagascar. Despite its name, it is not a true palm but rather belongs to the Strelitziaceae family. This unique plant is known for its distinctive fan-shaped leaves and tall, upright growth habit. The leaves are large and paddle-shaped, arranged in a fan-like manner, which gives the plant its resemblance to a palm tree. The Traveler’s Palm can reach heights of up to 30 feet (9 meters) and has a trunk covered with tightly overlapping leaf bases. Interestingly, the plant has a natural ability to collect and store rainwater in its leaf bases, providing a convenient water source for travelers in its native habitat. While it produces small, inconspicuous flowers, they are often overshadowed by the plant’s impressive foliage. Ravenala madagascariensis is commonly used in tropical and exotic landscaping, both for its architectural appeal and as a focal point in gardens and resorts. Its unique appearance and ability to thrive in various climates make it a sought-after plant for creating a touch of the tropics in different environments.
