Correa ‘Canberra Bells’ – Native Fuchsia


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.
