The white Ixora

 It is now the dry season - there was no rain in this forest for 3 months.... yet this Ixora finlaysoniana is in full bloom.
It is found in the more seasonal forest from IndoChina to Thailand and Philippines. Unlike many of its relatives, this species is not commonly in cultivation in the tropics, probably due to its less floriferous nature in the tropical climate.
