Correas are a group of Australian native plants with beautiful tubular flowers. There are many different Correa species that range from ground covers to small 2 m shrubs, with their peak flowering flush in late winter and early spring.
Correas are adored by nectar feeding birds and are particularly attractive to Australian native bees like blue-banded and carpenter bees. Correas prefer growing in cool to warm temperate climates in full sun to part shade in well-drained soil, and are dry and cold tolerant once established.
