There are about 400 species of Ixora of which the majority are endemic in India, China and Malaysia. Today a large number of cultivars of Ixora coccinea and Ixora chinensis are being cultivated throughout the tropics for their long lasting flowers and attractive shiny leaves. The forms of Ixora chinensis are usually growing only 2.5′ to 3′ high (0.75m to 0.90m ), with colors ranging from white to pink and orange.

In Praise of a fallen Flower: Sea Hibiscus

Sea Hibiscus flower series:

Fallen Flowers remind us of the natural birth/growth/death cycle. It’s hard to believe that nature can pack beautiful shades of colors into one lone Flower; it was hard to pass by without capturing your beauty. So delightful when alive up on the tree fully bloomed, don’t know how many took notice of you and appreciated the nature but the end will be so tragic that you are bound to be crushed by moving vehicles. You accomplished your life mission so here I am to honour you.
