The Nora Grant Ixora matures into a medium sized flowering tropical shrub about 3 feet x 3 feet. It has large elongated glossy leaves and a dense, tight, growth habit. It blooms in big star shaped clusters of bright clear pink florets from early summer until well into the fall in warm tropical and semi tropical climates; generally peaking in late September to October. The flowers are nectar rich and attract hummingbirds and butterflies. With good fertlize and adequate irrigation, flower clusters will be 4 inches to 6 inches across.
Nora Grant Ixora is native to Tropical Asia and Southern India. This ixora is very cold sensitive. Even in the tropics it will enter a dormant state when the nights drop into the 50's. Decline in color and overall vigor should be mostly ignored in the winter months, as the plant is not sick, but just resting. As soon as warm nights and sunny days return, these soon return in all their tropical glory.
This is one of the most popular and widely used landscape Ixoras for the tropical landscape. It is attractive as a single specimen or plant several in grouping or hedge for maximum impact, or can be incorporated into mixed perennial beds, used an accent, transition, or grown as a potted plant.
