Correa alba (Bronze Select)

Correa

Australian Fuchsia

Pendulous droves of dainty tubular blooms resembling Fuchsias promise to tempt the hummingbirds in your garden, and enliven it with fall, winter and early spring color. These evergreen shrubs have attractive dense growth, often with down covered stems and foliage. A small group of Australian natives, Correa are exceptionally tough, tolerating drought, salt spray, poor soil, wind and deer, but beware of over watering them. Plant in a well-drained spot on a bank or in the mixed border, and provide shade in hotter climates.

Correa alba (Bronze Select) full sun  partial shade

Everyone loves this chance evergreen hybrid from U.C. Davis, except those pesky deer. It makes a great windbreak, forming a dense, tidy mound of smooth topped, fuzzy bottomed leaves and soft rust-colored stems, while tolerating coastal breezes. Small white, star-shaped flowers borne at the leaf axils are a nice touch in the drab months of late winter. Beware of overwatering!

Blooms January – March.

Size: 8' high x 8' wide; hardy to zone 8.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!

Customer Comment:

“Thank you for your continued great service and excellent plants.... all the plants arrived in perfect condition. Healthy, and ready to bloom...the primrose produced a beautiful flower, just two weeks after arrival! We have always been impressed with the careful packaging, size and hardiness of your plant stock. We ordered Alstroemeria many years ago that have flowered every year, and are more beautiful with time. Thanks again!”
