Recently Shipped Ravenala madagascariensis, Travelers Tree, Travelers Palm



The Ravenala Madagascariensis or Travelers Palm is not a palm at all, but part of a flowering plant family native to Madagascar.

The Travelers Palm grows to be enormous, truly a centerpiece for your landscaping with its huge leaves sprouting from long stems in a glorious fan-shaped pattern.

These storied trees have tales folks love to share about them. Here’s a true one: a parched traveler can poke a hole almost anywhere on this “palm” and find clean drinking water. And here’s a false one:  the plant’s leaves will always grow in an east-west direction, so a lost traveler can find their way.

Best in full sun areas with a moderate amount of water, these trees grow tall – quickly! However, once a trunk begins to develop, the growth rate slows to a more moderate pace.  And, the further south you plant them, the taller they will get. In northern areas, they’ll reach about 30 feet. Closer to Miami, they can reach up to 50 feet.
