Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - dwarf red ixora taiwanensis is used in warm climates for hedges and screens, foundation plantings, massed in flowering beds, or grown as a specimen shrub or small tree. In cooler climes, ixora is grown in a greenhouse or as a potted house plant requiring bright light. Ixora is also grown in containers, looking very distinguished as a patio or poolside plant. This tight, compact shrub is much branched and tolerates hard pruning, making it ideal for formal hedges, although we think it is at its best when not sheared. Ixora flowers are widely used in hindu temples and ceremonies. Garlands are made from the flowers. These garlands are used in worship to the gods. Ixora plants are also said to be used in indian folk medicine (ayurvedic healing).
