Correa alba ‘Star Showers’ – Native Fuchsia

An attractive, very easy care and low growing shrub, Star Showers has grey dense foliage and prolific white starry flowers. The flowers are attractive to nectar feeding birds, and are borne over a long period, from autumn to early spring. It is a great landscaping plant, very hardy and suits a wide range of conditions. It has a nice ground covering habit, and an occasional tip prune will encourage an even more dense habit. Good for sunny to part shade, tolerates frost and dry periods well. Suitable for coastal gardens and for container growing.
