Correa 'Marian's Marvel', or the Australian Hardy Fuchsia, is a tender, spreading, evergreen shrub with reddish-brown stems bearing oval, dark green leaves and clusters of tubular, pink flowers with wide, yellow or bright green petal margins.
The bicolour flowers are a sight to behold and hang like tiny bells from October right through to March in ideal conditions. Holder of the RHS Award of Garden Merit you can be sure that it has been trialled and recommended as a plant worthy of growing and sure to perform in your garden.
Correas like full sun and will grow in well drained fertile soil which is acid to neutral. If grown in pots, they prefer ericaceous compost and full light with protection from direct sun and also from drying winds. Water sparingly through the winter, even when in flower.
Plants are tolerant of low temperatures down to 1°C (34°F), but will not survive being frozen so are best grown in a frost-free greenhouse or cool conservatory - except possibly in frost-free inner-city areas or coastal locations
Supplied as an established plant in a 5L pot, ready for immediate planting.
