Subsequently, orange geiger is a moderate-size tree growing to a height of 15-20 feet, it has gray furrowed bark and develops a dense round crown. Additionally, 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. Also, clusters of showy light to dark orange funnel-form flowers are borne at the branch ends. Fruits are small and oval, about 1 1/2 inches long, contain 1-4 seeds, and white when ripe.
