About this book

This is the first comprehensive guide to the identification and cultivation of Correas in Australia. It describes 10 species, 26 subspecies and 145 varieties. As well as detailed descriptions, the book contains chapters on cultivation, propagation and a guide to attracting birds to the garden. Many new cultivars, never before published have been included. It will be an excellent reference for gardeners, nurserymen, native plant enthusiasts and botanists.

Correas, also known as Native Fuchsia, occur naturally from the Queensland Border Ranges to Eucla in the west and throughout Tasmania and the Bass Strait islands. As garden plants they have been steadily growing in popularity in Australia over the past 20 years. Most varieties are frost and drought hardy and flower in Autumn and Winter providing an important source of nectar for small birds, especially honey-eaters. They are therefore the ideal Australian native plant for temperate and coastal gardens.

Correas are generally small shrubs, fitting into any garden or space, including tubs, can be grown in either full sun or shade, are compatible with other shrubs and are not invasive. Most Correa varieties are reliable and long-lived in the garden. They require a minimum of watering and maintenance making them an excellent choice for people who want a nice garden but have little time.
