Correa glabra (Variegated form)

I have been working on Correas lately, taking cuttings from many as they are covered in new growth. I have several forms of Correa glabra and they seem to be quite hardy plants. They originate from the Mt Lofty Ranges area across to the Strathalbyn plains. One that I have has variegated leaves. The variegations are golden yellow and on some plants individual leaves are very shiny and yellow. Other leaves are blotched yellow.

One of my aims in the next couple of weeks is to begin my Correa patch. The area I have chosen is an open space amongst the mallee trees. The correas will get dappled shade for part of the day.

I wrote about this Correa some weeks ago.
