Because the seed pot has a thicker shell, it is more resistant to external influences. In tropical conditions a seedling can give fruit after 3 years. The tree is very vigorous and fast growing, in favorable conditions it can reach a height of more than 30 ft. The Machete Ice Cream Bean is also can be used as an ornamental shade tree.

VERY RARE! Fragrant ixora - amazing rare plant with highly fragrant pinkish-white flowers.
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.

Ixora variegata Thai Snow

Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSeaside, salt tolerant plantUnknown name

The Thai Snow Ixora is a rare and lesser known Ixora Hybrid from Thailand. It has small rounded leaves glossy medium to deep green leaves that vary from splashed and speckled with white variegation to almost solid creamy white new growth.
The growth habit is semi-dwarf, maturing at around 2 feet with and a dense, tight, growth habit. It blooms in clusters of white to near white star shaped florets beginning in early summer. The flowers are nectar rich and attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Its best and most interesting feature however is the variegated foliage and slower growth habit. This is one makes especially nice potted plants and works well as in light shade to brighten and add texture. It does not bloom as prolifically and is not as showy as most of the green leaved ixoras, so the primary feature to consider when placing is the strikingly pretty variegated leaves which vary from being lightly mottled and sprinkled cream on the older to leaves to near solid creamy white barely dusted with emerald green.
