Positive einaudi On Sep 6, 2005, einaudi from Hana, HI (Zone 11) wrote:

Ixora odorata, as the specific name implies, produces very aromatic flowers on a grand scale. The flowers are the best part of this plant: spherical star-bursts 10-12" across in shades of pink, white and lemon yellow. As with other Ixoras in Hawaii, these plants are susceptible to scale and aphids, which I control with Neem spray.
