Correa alba – White Correa

A great little plant for coastal gardens, as it likes sandy soils and will resist salty winds. Likes a sunny spot, but will also grow in part shade, though flowering will be lessened. It responds beautifully to pruning, and can be shaped for formal uses. Also good in containers. Flowers in late autumn to winter with small white blooms.
