Gardeners' Notes:

Positive nature_girl On Feb 4, 2005, nature_girl from Singapore

One can tell by the ixora's scientific name, 'Ixora Singaporensis' that this plant grows VERY commonly in Singapore. This is probably the most common plant in all of Singapore and is often seen growings as hedges by roadsides. It always has flowers, and some people like to peel the fallen flowers of its petals and eat the nectar tube inside. They claim that it is sweet and delicious. I personally find this plant beautiful and rather hardy, and I really like it.
