Melorie,

Ixora is a very cold tender plant, unable to take a freeze or even tolerate temperatures in the 30's. Your only option would be to grow it as a container plant in the summer and then move it in to a greenhouse or bright indoor location for the late fall through early spring season.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
