    ID please

    Could somebody please identify this bush/shrub for me.

    People walking past admire it (it blooms virtually all year round) and ask me for the name.
    It needs pruning at least every 3 month.

    If the flowers turn into berries it could be a Pyracantha.

    Thank you Mary Anne. I looks like the Ixora coccinea, even though the clusters on mine are not quite as pronounced as shown in the wiki.

    Thank you Niki. There seem to be quite a few varieties and colours. I do think that my lot resembles the Coccinea variety the closest
