Ixora is a shrub growing 3'-4' tall, with glossy leathery leaves and large clusters of flowers from spring through autumn. It's not an easy plant to grow, and it's even more difficult to propagate! But, if you're game, take stem cuttings (4"-6") in the spring, remove the lower leaves, dip the cut ends in rooting homone, and place them in moistened potting soil. Provide bottom heat and hope for the best. If you're successful, the rooted cuttings will be develop new leaves and stems by the end of summer.
