Drought Tolerant Correas

Correas are lovely plants and a favourite of mine. There are so many forms and species and there are many very pretty hybrids. There are many drought tolerant ones that I know of. In general they all need good drainage. Trim the plants after flowering. Many can be trimmed to make good hedge plants.

Correa ‘Pink Mist’ has been around for years and is a very hardy small to medium shrub.

Correa reflexa has many hardy forms and one is Correa reflexa ‘Sellick’s Beach’. This one is a good coastal plant and also a good understory plant, growing amonst mallee trees. It forms a low mound to about 30cm high and 1-2m wide. It has dark pink and yellow flowers.
