Ixora Maui Red Containers
Jungle flame is 1 of the most common flowering shrubs you'll see in frost-free landscapes, such as those in South Florida. It's no wonder why. Jungle flame is an easy-to-grow shrub that blooms almost continuously through the year, producing hydrangea-like heads of red, yellow, orange, or pink flowers. The shrub stays relatively small, too making it perfect for planting along walkways, to hide the foundation of your home, or mixing in landscape beds with annual and perennials.
- Grow jungle flame in full sun or partial shade for best blooms, this flowering shrub tolerates shade, but won't bloom well if at all
- Water jungle flame regularly, especially in extended periods of hot, dry weather, once established, the plant is somewhat drought tolerant, but grows and blooms best when it's not allowed to wilt, especially in summer
- Because jungle flame is a slow-growing flowering shrub, you don't need to worry about pruning it a lot, if it does grow out of bounds, you can trim it any time of the year
- In landscapes with good soil, jungle flame doesn't typically need to be fertilized, if you have average or poor soil, fertilize this tropical shrub monthly in the growing season to keep it blooming and beautiful, when grown in containers, it does appreciate a regular supply of nutrients to keep producing healthy leaves and lovely flowers
