I'm joining in Noel's meme today by sharing the wonderful Ixoras I grow here in north-eastern Oz. For other great posts on 'The Hot, The Loud and The Proud' please visit A Plant Fanatic In Hawaii
One of the most common shrubs in a tropical garden has to be Ixora coccinea. I have a very tall specimen that is just over 3 metres tall now ... it puts on a fabulous display all year round.
I also grow the brilliant dwarf 'Twilight Glow' with its fabulous two tone apricot colours.
I have another lovely dwarf Ixora in my garden ... it's the rather more understated 'Sunshine Yellow'.
While it has these lovely pale lemony yellow flowers for most of the year ....
... right now it has these marvellous berrries.
Another lovely Ixora that's growing in my garden and flowers all year round is the 'Raywards Pink'.
I also have the dwarf white Ixora ... Ixora chinensis 'Peggy'.
A recent purchase is this Ixora with variegated leaves. It gets lovely yellow flowers but, as yet, hasn't bloomed.
