C.Federation-Belle.JPG (21385 bytes)Correa Federation Belle: Is a hybrid Correa that was selected by the Mole Station Native Nursery near Tenterfield, NSW. “Federation Belle” was released in 2001 to commemorate the Centenary of Federation of the Australian States.
Correa Federation Belle develops into a shrub reaching a height of 1.5 metres. The large, rounded, bell-shaped flowers are bright pink with creamy-yellow tips. Flowering is profuse from summer to winter. Honeyeaters are attracted to the nectar-rich blooms. The parents are said to be a form of Correa reflexa and Correa Marion’s Marvel.
“Federation Belle” is frost tolerant, prefers well-drained soil, will grow in full sun or partial shade and may be grown in containers.
This is a very impressive addition to the world of Correas. Regular pruning will keep the plant bushy and blooming bounteously.
