Ixora are one of the most colourful flowering screen and hedge plants available. Most will grow in sun or shade and have flowers in massed heads throughout the year.

There are four varieties of Ixora that have proved the most popular and successful,

  1. Iora Prince of Orange                            It grows about 2m and prefers semi shaded positions. It bears masses of long lasting orange heads of flower.
  2. Ixora Orange dwarf syn 'Maui"              Probably the most popular as it only grows about one metre and has masses of orange flowers in spring and summer. The original name is Maui
  3. Ixora yellow dwarf syn "Maui yellow'     Very similar in habit to orange dwarf but it has golden flowers. Not as robust as the orange form. The original name is Maui Yellow
  4. Ixora Pink Malay                                   Grows to about one metre with a more open habit than the other Ixora and has large heads of soft pink flower. Prefers shade. 
  5. Ixora Sunshine                                       The dwarf form of Ixora that grows to 500mm with finer leaves and foliage with yellow clusters of flowers. An orange form of this dwarf ixora          Twilight Glow is also available seasonally.

Ixora Prince of orange dwarf gardenThis is a photo of  Ixora orange dwarf at my home. The hedge is about 6 years old and is on the southern side of a Syzygium Elite hedge. It flowers for about three months of the year and requires only light pruning after flowering. 

During summer most of the hedge is in full sun and in winter part shade.

I find it very easy to maintain, I lightly prune it every 4 months (excluding when buds are set and that's about it
