Description

Ixora is a genus of flowering plants in the Rubiaceae family.It is one of the most colourful flowering and hedge plants available. Most will grow in sun or shade and have flowers in massed heads throughout the year.

The plants possess leathery leaves, ranging from 3 to 6 inches in length, and produce large clusters of tiny red flowers in the summer.

Environment

Plant Ixora in moist, organic enriched and well-drained acidic soil, and where there is abundant sunlight and humidity for optimum growth and flowering. Remove flowers when withered and dried leaves if any.

Prune annually to keep bush in shape or to encourage flowering, instead of repeatedly shearing off branch tips which will inhibit emerging flower buds.

Feed monthly with a water-soluble fertilizer formulated for acid-loving plants.

It is susceptible to yellowing of leaves (chlorosis) when grown in alkaline soil.

Landscape Uses

Excellent for hedges, screens or massed in garden beds and borders

Ixora plants are hardy and give out beautiful flower clusters. Minimum maintenance is needed for growing an ixora.

Ixora blooms best and grows more densely with full, direct sun for most of the day, but it also likes partial shade in the Indian summers. It needs daily watering in the summers but you can cut it down a little in winters. Take care that the soil remains moist but not soaking wet on a daily basis.

Ixora can be pruned anytime in the year. To maintain a good shape, you can choose to prune the oldest and the longest stems from the plant. If your plant's leaves look yellowish, the plant may need a fertiliser with a high nitrogen.Annual spring pruning and fertilizing will enhance the plant€™s health. Repot the plant once in 2-3 years changing the soil.
