Description

Believed to be a native of the Florida Keys, the flowers are produced year round, but are prolific in the spring and summer. It was named in the 1830’s by John James Audubon after John Geiger, a harbor pilot who salvaged sunken treasure off the coast of Key West, with whom Audubon stayed and painted. Geiger’s Key West home, which featured a beautiful Geiger tree in the front yard, later became Audubon House and Tropical Gardens. Source: South Florida Plant Guide.
