Correa reflexa x alba ‘Lemon Twist’ – Native Fuchsia

The lovely lemon bell-shaped flowers set on tough shiny foliage are the outstanding feature of this hardy bird attracting small shrub. Use it as a feature plant or even as a hedge as it copes well with regular pruning. Trim it at the end of winter as it finishes flowering. Feed in early spring with a good native fertilizer, and water in well afterwards to avoid foliage burn. Suits most soils and will flower in sun or in part shade.
