Caribbean Flowers Series - Ixora

The West Indian Jasmine

This garden shrub is quite popular in
Trinidad and Tobago and it may be fascinated to mathematicians by the spiral arrangement of its stems. When the buds open, the four petal flower make up a cluster which has a shape of a bulb or umbrella. In this cluster as any as may fifty flowers are comprise in commonly yellow or orange. The plant also produces a berry.

Children often play with the flower by spinning the stem between their fingers. This acts as a propulsion to lift the Ixora into the air.
