Ixora makes an excellent flowering hedge, accent, or addition to mixed perennial beds, or can be grown as a potted plant. It is one of the most popular landscape plants. Great plant for beginners, busy people who don't have time, or those who simply forget to water.
These plants need a warm, frost-free climate to grow outdoors as they are frost tender; in the tropics, they appreciate a part-shaded position, and in cooler climates they are grown in greenhouses. Humus-rich, moist but freely drained, friable soils and high humidity suit them best; and they need regular water during the warmer months. Ixora prefers full sun in moist, well-drained, acidic but organically rich soils. It can tolerate small amounts of shade in the afternoon heat. Plant Ixora where there is abundant sunlight and humidity for optimum growth and flowering. Remove flowers when withered and dried leaves if any. Prune annually to keep bush in shape or to encourage flowering, instead of repeatedly shearing off branch tips which will inhibit emerging flower buds.
Ixora chinensis has large, full flowers, and rounded petals that differ from pointed petals of Ixora coccinea.
Propagate from cuttings in summer or from seed in spring.
