Also known as flame of the woods or jungle flame, Ixora (Ixora coccinia) is an evergreen shrub with a rounded shape and attractive, glossy foliage. Blooms in shades of pink, orange or yellow, depending on the variety, appear nearly all year round. Although the plant can reach heights of up to 12 feet, it usually tops out at 4 to 6 feet in the home landscape. Ixora is suitable for planting in the mild climates of U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 10 through 11.
Light: Bright light, but avoid direct sunlight in summer.
Water: Keep soil continuously moist, but reduce watering in the winter. Very high humidity is preferred.
Temperature: Above 60ºF is preferred even in winter. Avoid cold drafts if temperature drops lower.
Soil: These acid-loving plants thrive in rich, moist, peat-based soil.
Fertilizer: Feed in spring with slow-release pellets or weekly during growing season with liquid fertilizer.
Take cuttings in the spring. Rooting ixora is difficult, and you might need rooting hormone and bottom heat for success.
