Correa pulchella x alba ‘Ice Maiden’ – Native Fuchsia

The flared dusky pink flowers combine with attractive dark green foliage are the features of this beautiful native fuchsia. 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. Suits most soil types, will flower in sun or part shade. Feed with a good native fertiliser in early spring and again in summer, being sure to water after application so as not to burn the foliage.
