1. I bought a fully flowered red ixora yesterday, the gardner said it is ok to keep it out door. but am not sure if it can survive this weather condition. It was 44 yesterday and its 35 celciues today 66% humidity.

2. When does it flower?

Cheers

It will take the heat, but may sunburn if not acclimated slowly. I have two in pots that thrive in mostly full sun, and have for five years. Mine are blooming now. Since mine are in pots, they do require lots of water, which flushes the nutrients out, so I do have to feed them with acid food to combat our alkaline water.

I had them in the Marshall Islands out in the western Pacific. It was hot all of the time, but very humid and the Ixora loved it as long as they got plenty of water and some food. I had a red and a yellow. I don't know if there are other colors. They are beautiful plants!
