Palma del viajero

Ravenala madagascariensis.

Description:

Aunque por su aspecto lo parezca, no es una verdadera palmera. Ha sido descrita como una mezcla de platanera y palmera. Las hojas miden hasta 15 pies de largo y se distribuyen en una sola fila formando un abanico abierto.

Habitat:

Prefiere pleno sol y tolera media sombra. No tolera las heladas.

I will study. Now I have no time, within hours I'm going to London. Thanks for all the information, they are very interesting.

Ah, it's a type of Strelitziaceae (the "type" plant of this family is the Bird of Paradise [named after Charlotte of Streilitz]).

It is a mixture of palm and banana.
