This orange geiger is another color variation of the geiger's. It is an evergreen/deciduous tropical tree; leaf drop may occur during periods of cold weather. A moderate-sized tree growing to a height of 15-20 feet, it has gray furrowed bark and develops a dense round crown. The dull green leaves are alternate, oval and thick with a rough upper surface, the edges often serrated and measuring 9 x 4 1/2 inches. Clusters of showy light to dark orange funnel-form flowers are borne at the branch ends. Fruits are small egg-shaped, about 1 1/2 inches long, contain 1-4 seeds and white in color when ripe. They are edible and attract birds. Orange geiger can be propagated from seeds or cuttings. The tree grows best on alkaline soils, can easily be transplanted and responds well to pruning. The geiger beetle is a particular pest to this species, and can cause leaf loss; spraying can control the pest. Orange geiger is an attractive tree for streetscapes, along the seaside and as a colorful specimen plant in gardens in the ground or containers.
