Flame of the Woods

The Flame of the Woods, Ixora coccinia flowers through the year. You can see it flowering all along the road when you travel in Goa. It has glossy green leaves and bright orange flowers.
The Ixora, being a native of India, has many medicinal uses. Its leaves are anti-inflammatory.

I love the needle shape of its buds. You can get Ixora in many colours- pink, yellow, red and white. It is a flower bush you see often in South India.
