Ferrous Sulfate is easily available and it is the easiest way to eliminate cholorosis (yellowing of leaves)

Dr. Farooq,

Please note that there was some ambiguety about the name the ID of our local white fragrant Ixora which becomes a small shrub. Now i am 100% certain that it's actual name is Ixora Parviflora.

The only reason I like to learn names is that I can find more about them in books and web.

So which Ixora is this?
Root cutting

The bush

It formed a nice compact tree about 10 feet high and had to be chopped down, Sprouting from the base it now is a large bush. It is adjacent to Gardenias but fragrance surpasses them.
Four years ago on web it was Ixora Chinensis now it is .....?
