Known as the Australian Fucshias the Correa are a genus or evergreen shrubs that flower throughout autumn, winter & early spring. Borderline hardy, making  it through the average winter of temperatures down to -8 but lower than this and with windchill they can suffer, so best in protected site or in a pot that can get tucked away when the weather gets extreme. 

This variety has lovely grey foliage not only offsetting the flowers beautifully but also looking good when not in flower. surprisingly good in part shade whre the flowers really shine like little beacons. Great in a mixed border in sheltered gardens.

Plants supplied in a 1 ltr pot.
