The ixora mini or the dwarf ixora plant is a small shrub-type plant that is native to Asia. The plant has leathery leaves of around 3 to 6 inches in size with large clusters of small star-shaped flowers. In tropical climates, they flower year-round. The larger versions of the plant are ideal for hedges, shrub beds, or even screens. The plants require at least 4 hours of sunlight each day and the soil should be well-drained and fertile. The ixora mini is the perfect plant to accent your house with its brightly-hued petals.
