Not all ixoras are grown for flower color. Ixora odorata from Madagascar requires tropical shade, produces huge 10-inch blooms on a 4-5 foot bush whose attraction is also a wonderful lingering scent. Excellent for shaded front door porches or backyard sitting areas. Unlike most ixoras that prefer full sun, this one prefers filtered light.

Almost all ixoras do best in acid soil, free from nematodes, a moist organic mix that is also well drained. Ixora can endure some salt spray on the wind. A common problem is our alkaline soils, especially near concrete and pools, causing poor health, poor foliage and poor blooming.

Your blurb about the ixora odorata states that it needs tropical shade and later states full sun.
