Description

Correa 'Dusky Bells' is a hardy, long-lived evergreen shrub with carmine-pink or dusky-red flowers. The pendant 1-inch tubular, fuchsia-like flowers bloom late fall through spring and attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Red Australian Fuchsia is a low-growing, mounding plant densely covered with dark green, narrowly oval leaves that partially cover the beautiful flowers as if they were shy. Easy to grow, this Correa performs best in partial shade but will grow in full sun. Tolerant of coastal conditions, frost, and drought once established. Useful as a groundcover, in raised beds, containers, or slopes.

Plant care

Grows in full sun to dry shade. It prefers moist, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil. After planting in the ground, water regularly until roots are established then reduce frequency as needed. Drought tolerant once established but should be irrigated occasionally in the summer for best performance. Tip-prune to promote new growth and improve flowering.
