Native Annuals and Perennials. Australian annual and perennial plants can be used to create excitement in your garden as they are quick growing, usually very floriferous and because they are relatively temporary they can be replaced on a regular basis to add something new each year.
Canberra’s centenary demanded a very special Australian plant be selected to commemorate the event in the nation’s gardens. This delicate new hybrid correa features brightly bicoloured flowers in red and white that are borne in profusion through autumn and early winter. It forms a small, compact shrub that will benefit from tip pruning when small and a light trim after flowering only if necessary. It prefers a well drained soil type but can be grown to absolute perfection in a medium to large container plant that will attract nectar feeding birds even into small suburban backyards. It is a deliberate hybrid between Correa ‘Federation Belle’ and C. ‘Mannii’ produced by Peter and Jenny Ollerenshaw of Bywong Nursery.
