very nice color, and lots of blooms on one bush. my 'maui sunset' didn't grow as well as this one. if you're going to have an ixora, think about Miss Nora first.

had to change this to a neutral only because my Nora Grant hasn't bloomed since winter. not sure why. looks beaten up too. i might just need to move it to a better spot.

I planted my ixora in a nice container with other tropical plant. 7 hours, morning sun during spring and summer. it looks very happy so far , I don't know how it will be during winter...but it is beutiful, and nice to have it for 6 months, even if she don't survive the winter...

Nora Grant is a landscape staple in this neighborhood. I don't care much for it--the color is flat, no sparkle. All Ixora seem to share that attribute.
