Depending on the growing conditions, Geiger-tree may be an upright, oval-canopied tree or more of a large bush.

(Anacahuita, Brazilian Cordia)

A very pretty flowering evergreen tree, the anacahuita or Brazilian cordia produces bright white flowers that contrast with its deep green foliage. When mature it stays small and develops a pleasing rounded canopy. This rainforest native of eastern Brazil may be easily confused with the more cold-hardy Texas olive (Cordia boissieri), which has similar white flowers with a few exceptions; Brazilian cordia's flowers are pure white and do not have brownish-yellow throats. After pollination...

(Buri Palm, Gebang Palm)

One of the largest growing palms on the planet, the gebang palm also boasts astounding leaf fronds and a towering, Christmas tree-like flowering stalk. This evergreen palm that dies after it flowers is native to the riverbanks and fertile grasslands of tropical southern Asia to northern Australia. It attains an upright trunk with wide-spreading to V-shaped canopy as it ages.

When a seedling, the gebang palm is slow growing, but once a trunk develops its pace hastens. A healthy plant will produce...

(Coryphantha)

This genus of small cacti includes about 45 species which are always in a state of flux because this group is devilishly hard to classify accurately. Coryphantha bears close ties to two genera, Mammilaria and Escobaria, which are visually identical to the untrained eye. This genus is considered the most widespread in North America, with its range extending from the Southwestern U.S and much of Mexico. They are most often found in rocky elevated positions where these small...

(Elephant's Tooth, Starry Ball)

This tidy little cactus is a great choice for windowsill gardens, greenhouses and outdoors in the Southwest. It is native to the Mexican states of Michoacan and Morelos where conditions are dry and rainfall scarce. In habitat this cactus is found as an individual, but may also produce very large clumps. Each plant is globe shaped and stemless, the skin glossy dark green with some wool at the growth tip. The tubercles on this cactus are large and well defined with each containing a spine bearing areole....

(Cotyledon, Plakkie)

These succulent shrubs and subshrubs from southern Africa are valued for their handsome evergreen or deciduous foliage and their drought tolerance. The paired fleshy leaves are often densely borne along prostrate or upright branches, which may reach head-height. The rounded, mint-green to silvery-blue leaves have scalloped or toothed edges. Many-flowered umbels of nodding, bell-shaped flowers occur at the tips of long flowering stems in summer, winter, or year-round. The yellow, orange, or red blooms...
