I planted this variegated Ixora finlaysonia (common name: Siamese White Ixora, Western Indian Jasmine; Family: Rubiaceae) for a long time now but it is very slow growing. All the plants in this area were removed recently. Thank goodness they left this plant behind.

The variegation is rather strong and stable and I love the reddish petioles too. I guess it is time to propagate this shrub before it disappears someday.
