A fairly small, bushy shrub, usually only 5-10ft tall. There are dwarf varieties that are
much smaller. Ixora will flower when only a few inches high. It is commonly used a hedge
or small garden plant. Ixora is too tender to grow outside of the tropics and subtropics.
It prefers a warm, humid climate with temperatures rarely dipping below 60F, and has only
moderate drought tolerance. Plants grow in shade or full sun.

Ixoras need a warm, frost-free climate to grow outdoors as they are frost tender; in the tropics, they appreciate a part-shaded position, and in cooler climates they are grown in greenhouses. Humus-rich, moist but freely drained, friable soils and high humidity suit them best, and they need regular water during the warmer months. Light pruning after flowering in fall or late winter will maintain shape; spent flowerheads should also be removed.
