Ixora is a striking evergreen plant native to tropical and subtropical areas around the globe. It's also known as Jungle Geranium for its bright round flower clusters resembling the annual geranium.

Plant in partial shade in very hot areas or a cool sunny spot in coastal areas for tropical garden color. Ixora plants like mildly acidic soil and may flower nearly year-round in mild climates. They are also suitable for container gardening or growing indoors.
