The Orange Geiger is a very showy tree, with deep orange flowers that contrast nicely against the tree’s coarse green leaves within any landscape. Not only visually stunning, orange geiger trees are also incredibly important to their local ecosystems as they provide food and shelter for various species of birds such as hummingbirds. Geigers are drought-tolerant once established, as well as salt-tolerant.
