This watercolor painting captures a close-up of a travelers palm flat-sided trunk. Frond stems are woven in shades of green with brown edges.
The plant is closely related to bananas (having similar leaves) & in the same family as the Bird-of-Paradise Flower.
The name "Travelers Palm" is derived from two characteristics. 1. Rainwater flows down the leaves & collects in the base where a thirsty traveler could cut into & drink. 2. They tend to grow in an east-west direction & can serve as a compass, to put you back on track after quenching your thirst :) -
