What are these plants called?

soundgarden(z8/ New Orleans, La)October 21, 2004

I've been seeing these plants all over the city, at the zoo, etc and I have no idea what they are.

The flower is like a hydrangea because it is a 'snowball' of tiny flower clusters, but the flowers are either bright orange, yellow or red. (these are the only colors I've seen so far.

I'm pretty sure that it's a plant and not a shrub.

Any clue?

Thanks, Annie

Ixora? Cashmere Bouquet?

Probably Ixora. I think I have a photo and don't know how to post on the forum. If you e-mail me I will send it to you.

That's what it was, Ixora. Thanks.
Are they native plants?

I believe that they are native to Hawaii.
