Yes Sir Arif and Khan Sb, these are fresh purchase. I had one plant last year which could not survive cold weather of Pindi. I didn't know that I needed to protect it from frost; I left it in open and it died. This winter, I ll try and keep them under cover with some sun light; lets see if they survive.

Ixora is very sensitive to cold temps even if protected in plastic tunnel against frost it can not survive.

Oh! Your Ixoras are looking so full. Hope they survive in winter. Thanks to Allah for the climate of Karachi. Ixora is a ornamental plant in Karachi i.e. it also blooms in Winter and not even go dormant.
