These plants are dependable bloomers, love the sun, and fit nicely into any size landscape.
Often planted in groups or rows for maximum color, ixoras work well with informal gardens, tropical beds, or more formal and manicured landscape designs. Their clustered blooms attract butterflies and come in a variety of colors.
These plants bloom heavily during warm months, and then off and on through cooler weather.
Nora Grant blooms with bright, hot pink flowers. Their large size works in any yard with correct placement. Too tall for use as foundation plants, this variety can add color and interest along a blank garage wall or a plain fence.
The dwarf variety has small leaves like box-wood and blossoms cover almost the entire plant. The dwarf red ixora is the hardier of this smallest variety...other colors such as pink, white and orange are more cold sensitive.
Maui has larger leaves, a more free-form shrub shape, and is decorated with eye-catching flowers.
These evergreen plants need full to partial sun to produce the most flowers. They thrive in Zone 10, though extra-cold winters can cause them to drop leaves.
Trim to shape as needed. Avoid pruning the dwarf shrub too hard, since it will take a long time to grow out of the pruning. Maui can be cut back in spring (late March or early April) to promote fuller, bushier plants.
