Correa pulchella ‘Remarkable Rocks’ – Native Fuchsia

The salmon coloured flowers in winter is the outstanding feature of this lovely Correa from South Australia. Use it as a small feature shrub in an area where you can enjoy the nectar feeding birds that it will attract. Tip prune the plant when young and give it a light trim after flowering has finished at the end of winter. Does well on most soil types and will flower in sun or in part shade. Feed with a good native fertilizer in spring and water in well.
