RAVENALA

DSC_4729 blog

“Ravenala madagascariensis, commonly known as traveller’s tree or traveller’s palm, is a species of plant from Madagascar. It is not a true palm but a member of a monocotyledonous flowering plant family, Strelitziaceae. Ravenala madagascariensis is the sole member of the genus Ravenala, and is closely related to the southern African genus Strelitzia and the South American genus Phenakospermum. Some older classifications include these genera in the banana family. Although it is usually considered to be a single species, four different forms have been distinguished.
