Ixora or Popo Lehua

Ixora casei
Native to the East Indies, the Ixora blooms in many Hawaii low elevation gardens. This is a much prized ornamental that produces large ball clusters of tiny bright red flowers. Unfortunately, there is no fragrance to Ixora. Popo Lehua in Hawaiian describes a "clump of blossoms" much as this bush appears.
