Ixora

April 2014 flower of the month: Ixora

Common names: Jungle Flame, Flame of the Woods, Jungle Geranium, Needle Flower, West Indian Jasmine

Prince of Orange
An evergreen shrub with erect, densely packed branches, Ixoras come in all shapes, sizes and colours - some growing to 50cm and others growing to 1-2m in height. With such a wide range of flower colours including pink, orange, yellow and even white this showy and elegant shrub is a must for the Coffs garden. It seems to thrive in our climate, most will grow in sun or shade and have flowers in massed heads throughout the year.

Originally from China and Malaysia Ixoras may be used as border plants, shrubbery or pots - it would appear in any application!
