{Ixora}

On our patio we also have the exotic tropical plant Ixora and it looked so lovely on July 4th. Due to plenty of late afternoon showers, like in the tropics, it was quite happy!
A bright yellow color with touches of pink...
Far more common is the red variety which you already may know.
But look; only six weeks later but after a dry spell...
Looking all perked up after a generous 'drink' from the green hose in the back...
Without water there will be NO LIFE!
It is still very hot and dry in Georgia/USA...

  3. Pretty yellow. Very hot here. With high humidity by afternoon that is really suffocating. We bought some flowering pushes last weekend. I think they are gardenia though very tiny little blooms. The Arabic word that Indian guy told Sam translates to orchid and they are definitely not orchids. HA! Have a wonderful Wednesday. Tammy

    1. Dearest Tammy,
      Thank you and yes, we both also like the yellow variety even more than the red one.
      Here we too have very high humidity; it is 100% at the time I write this reply and it's not even 10:00 AM...
      Probably you got some jasmine bushes and the guy might have told Sam the truth about these blossoms resembling mini orchids. Look here at these pictures: {White Indian Jasmine the Queen of Flowers}
      Hope you are lucky enough to see them bloom!
      Hugs,

      It is a wonderful flower and with the high humitity we have right now, they might be able to pick up some much needed moisture... There should be some rain next week. Let's hope it is coming our way! Please do send your clouds our way!!! The wind is NNE so there is a slim chance...
      Hugs to you,

  5. Hello Mariette, I may have seen some of these flowers around Taipei--I'll have to take a closer look the next time I spot one. Weather patterns seem to get stranger and stranger. We have storms almost every day, yet there is an overall drought because the total downfall is still not enough.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      In Indonesia we did have the red version all over and I guess you also find them in Taipei.
      We sure need rain too, the lawn is starting to look very ugly already. Lack of water is a terrible thing on most crops. Our gardens are only for pleasure and we don't have to make a living from it. Hope you soon get it balanced out.
      Kindest regards,
      Mariette

      Yellow is always a happy and warm color and especially in the sunshine.
      Glad to hear you got agan some sunhine in The Netherlands. Just heard from my Parents over the phone that it is lovely today and that the fields are so wet that farmers can't even harvest...
      Wish we had some of that rain for now.

    herrlich ist dein Phlox - was für eine tolle außergewöhnliche Farbe -

    wir haben heute auch einen schönen Sonnentag - wenn auch nicht annähernd so heiß wie bei euch -
    aber ich bin zufrieden nach dem furchtbaren Regen am gestrigen Tag -

      Es ist aber kein Phlox sondern eine tropische Ixora die normalerweise in rot kommt.

  10. Hi Mariette, your flowers are beautiful. I love the cheerful yellow color with a hint of pretty pink!
    Sounds like they need lots of lots of water.
    It's got very hot and dry lately. I hope we'll have some rain!

    Have a great day xoxo

  12. Hallo lieve Mariette,

    Het is met buiten potplanten altijd maar de vraag of ze het wel of niet goed doen en dat zal ook mede afhangen van het klimaat.De naam en foto van de plant zei mij in eerste instantie helemaal niets,al zal ik hem vast wel eens ergens tegen gekomen zijn in de tropen of in tropische kassen,het blad deed mij een beetje aan koffiestruik denken.Ging wat Google en zie dat Ixora familie is van Rubiacean en tot die familie behoren ook koffiestruiken,zag ik dus goed aan het blad van jou plant.
    Ben vandaag zo ongeveer 6 keer begonnen om verder te gaan met deze reactie,telkens moest ik achter pc vandaan,telefoon,visite,naar de oven,Har die klopt tegen het raam of ik even wil komen kijken,hij is de voordeur aan het schuren etc.

    Lees dat het bij jullie erg warm is, dus komt de tuinslang goed van pas.

    Lieve groet,Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Ja, of het om kamerplanten of buiten potplanten gaat, de omgeving en verzorging hebben inderdaad een grote invloed op hun wel en wee. Maar we hopen maar verder het beste. Volgende week zou er weer flink onweer komen, dagelijks... We wachten maar af en anders gewoon met de tuinslang water geven...
      Dus Har is ook goed druk nog en jij natuurlijk met koken, bakken en braden.
      Je had het dus goed gezien dat het een familielid van de koffiestruiken is. Er zijn erg veel Ixora variëteiten ook.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

      Each country and each region has different flowers. This is a tropical one so we must shelter it in winter time... It would do well inside too!

      You ought to send your Australian rain over to us so we don't need to give our plants a drink from the green garden hose!

  16. Dearest Mariette,
    Ixora is a beautiful plant. I see that you grow it in a pot; I could probably grow it up here and bring it in for the winter.
    We are very dry up here. We are conserving water where we can. My latest is to put basins in the sinks and empty them into buckets for watering. It's a real eye opener as to how much water we use wastefully.
    Enjoy these sunny, if dry, summer days.........*s*

    1. Dearest Suzi,
      Oh, in Australia I've seen this water conserving first hand and they reuse the rinse water from their washing maching for another washing... Why not? We all can be very wasteful if not paying enough attention to any use of water! Good thing you are doing this.

  17. My dearest Mariette,
    Here I am again, at long last! Your blog is the first I visit after this long absence... and first of all, I must tell you that I felt so touched when I found your sweet and loving comments on the very few posts I managed to post this month... THANK YOU so much for your friendship, dear Mariette... It is indeed real and loyal friendship, because he have hung in with me even if I have been away for a long time! I really hope to be able to follow your beautiful blog more regularly now... It's been such an eventful year (in a positive way!), and now after my stay in Rhodes and having settled in in the new apartment, I should hopefully have more time. I felt so bad about neglecting all the beautiful blogs I so love reading... So, hopefully, I should be more settled now (but I will spend two weeks in Rhodes in October!)...
    I'm looking forward to keeping admiring your amazing garden!!!!
    Thank you for your friendship, lots of love and hugs from the Alps

  19. Liebe Mariette,
    diese Pflanze kenne ich gar nicht. Möglicherweise gibt es sie bei uns jedoch als Topfpflanze.
    Für viele Gewächse ist es in unseren Breiten draußen einfach zu kalt, besonders im Winter. Man bräuchte dafür ein Gewächshaus.

    Hier war der Regen inzwischen auch angekommen - gestern spät goss es ganz fürchterlich. Heute zeigt sich aber wieder blauer Wolkenhimmel.

    Liebe Grüße auch hier
    Sara

    1. Liebe Sara,
      Ja ganz bestimmt soll es diese bei euch als Topfpflanze auch geben!
      Wir brauchen auch ein Gewächshaus da es in den zwei Monaten vom Winter auch frieren kann.
      Gott sei Dank hat es hier auch geregnet weil wir in Arizona im Urlaub waren; alles schaut frisch und grün aus.
      Liebe Grüsse,
      Mariette
