SUPER KING Tropical Ixora Plant Giant Clusters Red Flowers


13 reward points

Ixora duffi or Red Super King Ixora is an attractive, medium sized, flowering tropical shrub that truly is the King of all the ixoras.  It is an older species that has recently regained popularity and has re-introduced as new, and to some it may seem to be so, as this plant has not been widely available in the mainstream chain store garden centers for many years. 

Super King matures into medium size 3 ft x 3 ft shrub.  It is a pretty plant with large elongated glossy leaves and a slightly open habit.  The spectactular blooms are huge clusters of star-shaped blood red florets.  Buds begin to appear in the early to mid-summer and last well into fall in tropical and subtropical climates.  With good fertilize and adequate irrigation, flower clusters can be 6 to 10 inches in diameter. 

Ixora Super King is recommended for growing outdoors in USDA Plant Zones 9B, 10 and 11, but can be grown as a potted plant, wintered indoors, or acclimated to grow as a full time houseplant, but may require supplemental full spectrum light to produce flowers.   

Ixoras are tropical plants, and while a mature Super King Ixora might withstand very brief drop below 32ºF with minor burn & defoliation, for the best year round appearance, earliest flowering and longest life, full protection from frost and freeze, and temps below 40ºF is recommended for the best results.

Super King Ixora makes an attractive single specimen, in hedge row or mass planted for maximum impact, incorporated into mixed perennial beds, or grown as potted plants.
