IT’s a flowering shrub here, an ornamental.  I have also seen what I thought was ixora as a kind of large (tallerthan me) topiary outside.  I have seen red, yellow, and white.  There’s another common name for it here in the Philippines but I have forgotten what I was told.


Ixora is a genus of flowering plants in the Rubiaceaefamily. It is the only genus in the tribe Ixoreae. It consists of tropical evergreen trees and shrubs and holds around 545 species. Though native to the tropical and subtropical areas throughout the world, its centre of diversity is in Tropical Asia.


It grows in the US in zones 10 and 11 and you can get it from your local plant nurseries.  Here’s how to care for it.

It blooms all year round here, and makes a very pretty hedge.
