Emeralds Tm Tropical Ixora Starter Plant Rare Hybrid Variegated Leaves White Flowers Thai Snow 4 Inch Pot


.The Thai Snow Ixora is a somewhat rare and lesser known Ixora Hybrid from Thailand.  It has small rounded leaves glossy medium to deep green leaves that vary from splashed and speckled with white variegation to almost solid creamy white new growth.

The growth habit is semi-dwarf, maturing at around 2 feet with and a dense, tight, growth habit.  It blooms in clusters of white to near white star shaped florets beginning in early summer from and continuing until well into the fall in warm tropical and semi tropical climates.

The flowers are nectar rich and attract hummingbirds and butterflies. It's best and most interesting feature however is the variegated foliage and slower growth habit. This is one makes especially nice potted plants and works well as in light shade to brighten and add texture. It does not bloom as prolifically and is not as showy as most of the green leaved ixoras, so the primary feature to consider when placing is the strikingly pretty variegated leaves which vary from being lightly mottled and sprinkled cream on the older to leaves to near solid creamy white barely dusted with emerald green. It's one of my personal favorite.

Direct planting of 4 inch size starter plants is not generally recommended, so for the best results with your new ixora plant, we recommend it be repotted and allowed to grow larger before setting out in a tropical to subtropical landscape.
