Planting and care

  • Water Ixora as needed to keep the soil evenly moist, but not muddy.
  • Although the plant prefers moist soil, it may rot in excessively soggy soil.
  • Water the shrub sparingly during the winter months.
  • Feed Ixora in early spring, using an acidic fertilizer formulated for Ixora, azalea and gardenias, which has a ratio such as 4-8-8, along with minor elements that are beneficial.
  • Repeat in midsummer and autumn.
  • Acidic fertilizer is especially important if the foliage takes on a yellowish cast, indicating a magnesium deficiency caused by improper soil pH.
  • Apply the fertilizer according to label specifications, then water deeply.
  • In spring, remove the mulch along with the top crust of soil.
  • Replace the removed mulch and soil with fresh mulch.
  • Prune Ixora after blooming slows in late autumn or anytime the shrub looks untidy.
  • Prune each shoot down to just one bud or prune the shrub as needed to create the size and shape desired.
  • Protect Ixora from aphids and scales.
  • Aphids are tiny, green insects that congregate at joints of the leaves and stems or the undersides of the leaves.
  • Scales are hard-shelled insects that give the foliage a waxy appearance.
  • Regular application of an insecticidal soap spray or neem oil usually helps to control both pests.
