Correa Marianne: is a member of the Rutaceae family that will develop into an upright shrub reaching a height of 1.5 metres with a similar width.
Correa Marianne is a hybrid whose parents are said to be Correa baeuerlenii And Correa lawrenciana.
The leaves are long, narrow and about three centimetres long. They are dark green above with oil dots and pale green beneath.
The flowers have the typical tubular shape and are pink grading to yellowish green at the tips. Honeyeaters are attracted to the blooms that are carried for most of the year.
Correa Marianne is a very hardy, free flowering shrub. We have a number of specimens in the gardens at Yallaroo and they have proved to be frost and drought hardy. Prune occasionally to keep plants dense, shapely and blooming bounteously.
For those interested in this beautiful group of native plants we would recommend Correas Australian Plants for Waterwise Gardens by Maria Hitchcock. This information-packed book is a must for Correa fancier.
