Description

Cordia Sebestena is commonly known as Geiger Tree and it is an evergreen Shrub. It grows to a maximum height of 25-30 feet at maturity, with a nearly equal spread. The dense, evergreen foliage consists of dark green, leathery, alternate, ovate leaves, seven inches long, with wavy margins. These leaves are covered with small hairs, lending them a rough texture. Flowers are produced in clusters at branch ends throughout the year, particularly in the spring and summer. They are dark orange in colour.

Environment

Cordia Sebestena needs to be grown in full sun. It grows well in places where the soil is not a problem. The roots are very susceptible to rot; therefore watering should be done only when needed. The plant is drought tolerant.

Landscape Uses

Well suited to be grown in gardens for its beautiful flowers.

Flowering plants need access to bright sunlight to remain healthy and blooming. An easy facing balcony is the best place for the plants in Indian conditions. Try keeping them in bright sunlight but also where they get a little cover from the harsh afternoon sun. Some plants which are a little tender tend to burn due to the same.

Plants with thin leaves need daily watering and ones with thick leaves need watering 3-4 times a week. This will also depend on the season. Generally during the blooming period, plants love a lot of water. Try keeping the soil moist. During winters it is better to cut back on watering.

Keep the plants in a well drained soil with a drainage hole at the bottom. This will help to avoid over watering. Take care as to not leave stagnant water on top of the soil. Fertilise the plant once in 2-3 weeks during its blooming period. Do not fertilise it in winters.
