Just got this seedling plant. Was told it came from what looked like a small tree with reddish orange flowers. The seeds were collected down in Long Boat Key, Florida.

Thank you in advance!

Too bad you didn't get a pic. of the tree and flowers. Guess we will have to wait till your plant grows up.

Yeah, I got a couple of seedlings from a friend who collect seed pods while on vacation.
Time will tell.
Thank you!

Could it be Orange Geiger Tree (also known as Geranium Tree, Anaconda, Orange Cordia, Scarlet Cordia, Cordia sebestena)?

Oh hey - when you embed an image in a post, use , instead of [ ] - that's why it didn't work...

That's it! Too bad I'm in zone 9b. I am getting away with more here than I should be. A 17 year old key lime, multiple crotons, etc. I guess I shouldn't press my luck.
Thank you all for the info.

I was growing it here in Port St Lucie, but I took it out because it seeded everywhere. I still have the yellow geiger growing.
