Identifying a Garden Plant - shrub with dark green leaves and salmon pink flowersThis bush was given to me by a friend who did not know the name of the plant or anything about it. I would like to know what it is and any growing information.

It could be an azalea.

At first I thought it was Rhododendron but then I was looking at the odd blooms (the spiky things) and I wondered if it was in the lily family...maybe a Peruvian Lily.

Our Rhod never shoots out long skinny blooms like that...but maybe I just have one that doesn't. It is old and came with the house so I don't know its pedigree.

Are you in the US? Maybe ask your local home extension office. pickyourown.org/countyextensionagentoffices.htm

Post back with an update!!

Your plant looks like it might be an Ixora - perhaps orange?
These make beautiful bushes or even into a tree form (standard?) if trimmed properly. Many people have these as hedge plants and they are beautiful.

I believe USDA Zone 9 is the lowest recommended for planting outdoors but you can check that for yourself.
Know your USDA Zone?

These are hardy plants and love the sunshine as well as well drained soil.

Check out this link for more information - be sure to look at pictures to be sure we are talking about the same plant.

This is an ixora. It will do well in a pot, and in the ground if you are in a warmer climate. Mine flowers most of the year in South Texas.
