SpecificationsThe 'Coral Fire' is hardy and quite unique bearing a profusion of coral/tangerine flower clusters during the warmer months of the year. These brilliant coloured flowers contrast with the bronze tipped dark green foliage. Plant en masse or as a hedge 'Coral Fire' is eye-catching and works well where a bit of color is needed. These lovely Ixoras are also ideal as an underplanting around specimen trees where they will thrive and add that lovely contrasting colour. Preferring full sun or partial shade this hardy decorative plant will form a nicely rounded shrub 1m x 1m if left untrimmed. 'Coral Fire' will grow in any well-draining soil and not over-watered. Mulching is advisable as this helps conserve water and keeps the soil cooler which will in turn help the plant to perform at its best. Fertilize during the growing season with an all purpose fertilizer or alternatinely a slow-release fertolizer. A light prune will help to maintain the desired shape. This lovely Ixora is also suitable as a potted specimen in courtyards and outdoor entertaining areas.
