Geiger Tree (Cordia sebestena) is a slow-growing shrubby tree in the borage family (Boraginaceae), native to the American tropics.
Geiger Tree is widely planted throughout the tropics as an ornamental plant in gardens for its beautiful flowers.
The original botanical illustration featured on the magnets was done by Etienne Denisse and published in the lavishly-illustrated Flore d’Amérique (1843-46).
Etienne Denisse (1785 – 1861) was a lithographer for the French royal court and spent his early career at the botanical garden of the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris.
He was soon employed by the French government to work in the French West Indies where he spent years illustrating and collecting plants from the region and sending specimens back to France.
