Ravenala Ambaja. Orange Travellers Palm
The Ravenala Ambaja has enormous paddle shaped banana-like leaves all aligned on a single plane, giving the whole plant an appearance of a huge fan. This special form is a little more compact and has a shorter trunk than the Ravenala Madagascariensis.
Also known as the Orange Travellers Palm, its tightly packed leafbases are dark orangey in colour along their edges near their base and waxy white petioles. This is not a true palm, it actually belongs to the Bird of Paradise family of plants, the Strelitziaceae.
A real unique plant it's great as a patio, conservatory or atrium plant. Growing in a container will restrict it's growth, as it does grow quite large and also allow it to be moved inside during winter.
