Correa Dinner Bells
Only 97 left
Flowering for almost half the year, from early summer right through into winter, this lovely little native shrub really deserves its place in your garden. It's happy in a pot, by the seaside, in a shrub border, or a pot on the patio. The cute little bell flowers, red and cream, hang like miniature Christmas decorations, luring in honeyeaters; and the dense foliage shelters birds year round.

PLANTING: Plant in full sun to part or dappled shade, sheltered from strong winds. Unlike some natives, correas are happy in alkaline soils. Mulch after planting to retain moisture and regulate soil temperatures as the young plant establishes. Tolerates frost, coastal spray, and dry spells once established.
CARE: A light prune once flowering has finished will help give the plant shape and keep it dense. Follow with an application of a native slow release fertiliser.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 1 - 1.2m H x 1 - 1.2m W.
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
