*RETAIL - Correa 'Dusky Bells'

*THIS SIZE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR SALE IN OUR RETAIL NURSERY

This old standby of the Australian fuchsias (actually in the citrus family) has been available but scarce on the West Coast for many years. Shrubs to 4 ft with small rounded leaves and nearly brick-red bell flowers, blooming profusely from mid autumn through winter and occasionally in summer, preferring soil that is not rich and summer water that is only occasional in any exposure but the deepest shade. Though most at home in coastal gardens, we find it makes an indispensable container plant – think winter flowers on the front porch -- having been damaged in our garden only twice when temperatures dipped below 20F. Frost hardy in uppermost USDA zone 8 in the ground.
