Correa reflexa is a low growing (0.5 to 2m), wonderfully hardy shrub that flowers through the year.

There are many different forms, from near prostrate to more upright, and yellow cream to pink to red and yellow flowers. The flowers are long and tubular bell shaped, and are attractive to birds and other nectar lovers.

Will grow on a wide range of soil types, and in sun to shade. Best growth and flowering are in a well drained soil with a good compost mulch, and regular watering.

Will survive if neglected, and rarely troubled by pests or disease.
