Description

These attractive, small shrubs are often used for hedges and in such places as down the centre of median strips as they are hardy and flower throughout most of the year. The 4-petalled tubular flowers form clusters or heads. Yellow, orange, pink and red varieties are available. Originally from Asia, Ixora is now grown throughout the tropics and subtropics.
