Canberra’s centenary demanded a very special Australian plant be selected to commemorate the event in the nation’s gardens. This delicate new hybrid correa features brightly bicoloured flowers in red and white that are borne in profusion through autumn and early winter. It forms a small, compact shrub that will benefit from tip pruning when small and a light trim after flowering only if necessary. It prefers a well drained soil type and likes some extra watering in dry periods. Grows well in sun to part shade.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
