Dainty dark glossy leaves form a dense low mat, dainty red-yellow traffic light flowers bloom for almost half the year. This correa is happy by the seaside, in a shrub border, in tricky soils on steep banks, and is frost and drought tolerant. Flowers from a young age as you can see in the image gallery - tubestock already covered in flowers.
