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.

Maui Sunset Ixora will mature into a low growing oval shrub at about 2-3 feet tall. It has the typical pointed, ovoid shaped leaves of the Ixora in a pretty olive toned green. The foliage grows dense and tight, and the new growth is a pretty bronze color. This Ixora hybrid has stunning sunset-peach flowers and is extremely undemanding plant that brings you joy of flowers year around. This evergreen shrub-like plant showcases incredible peach-yellow flower clusters with a touch of red-orange. Blooms ranging in color from butter yellow to peach and appear almost year around. The bloom is made up of many small star shaped florets, and generally will have 2 to 3 cluster heads per stem. The fruits are round and dark purple to black.
