Correa_Canberra_bells.jpg (49522 bytes)Correa Canberra Bells: is a member of the Rutaceae family and is a small shrub reaching a height of one metre with a similar spread.

Correa Canberra Bells is a controlled cross between Correa Federation Belle and Correa Mannii. This hybrid has been selected to celebrate the Centenary of Canberra in 2013.

The heart-shaped leaves are two centimetres long, lustrous green above and paler beneath.

The flowers are bell-shaped, red with white tips and carried through autumn into winter. Blooms are conspicuous, profuse and bird attracting.

Correa Canberra Bells is a hardy, waterwise shrub that could be grown as a foreground plant in native garden beds. This colourful hybrid would also be happy living in a container. Occasional tip pruning is appreciated.

Propagates readily from cuttings.

This is another splendid native plant developed by Peter and Jenny Ollerenshaw of Bywong Nursery in southern New South Wales. We have many plants produced by Bywong Nursery in the gardens at Yallaroo.
