Collection: ixora

Ixora is a genus of tropical flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae, commonly known as flame-of-the-woods, jungle flame, or ixora. Here's a description of the plant:

  1. Appearance: Ixora plants are evergreen shrubs or small trees with dense foliage. They typically have leathery, glossy leaves that are dark green in color. The most prominent feature of ixora is its clusters of small, tubular flowers, which are borne in terminal clusters. These flowers come in a variety of colors including red, orange, pink, yellow, and white, depending on the species or cultivar.

  2. Growth Habit: Ixora plants vary in size, with some species growing as compact shrubs reaching heights of around 2 to 4 feet (60 to 120 cm), while others can grow into small trees up to 20 feet (6 meters) tall. They have a bushy growth habit and can be pruned to maintain their shape and size.

  3. Climate: Ixora is native to tropical and subtropical regions of Asia, Africa, and the Pacific Islands, where they thrive in warm, humid climates. They prefer full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. In cooler climates, ixora can be grown as a houseplant indoors or in a greenhouse.

  4. Blooming Season: Ixora plants typically bloom year-round in tropical climates, with peak flowering occurring during the warm, humid months. The flowers are highly attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.

  5. Maintenance: Ixora is relatively low-maintenance, requiring regular watering to keep the soil evenly moist during the growing season. They benefit from occasional fertilization with a balanced fertilizer to promote healthy growth and flowering. Pruning can help maintain a compact shape and encourage more blooms.
