A must have book for any gardeners who love Correas
This is the first
comprehensive guide to the identification and cultivation of Correas in
Australia. It describes 10 species, 26 sub-species and 145 varieties.
As well as detailed descriptions, the book contains chapters on
cultivation, propagation and a guide to attracting birds to the garden.
Many new cultivars, never before published have been included. It is an
excellent reference for gardeners, nurserymen, native plant enthusiasts
known as Native Fuchsia, occur naturally from the Queensland Border
Ranges to Eucla in the west and throughout Tasmania and the Bass Strait
islands. As garden plants they have been steadily growing in
popularity in Australia over the past 20 years. Most varieties are
frost and drought hardy and flower in Autumn and Winter providing an
important source of nectar for small birds, especially honeyeaters.
They are therefore the ideal Australian native plant for temperate and
coastal gardens and will thrive in cool highland gardens which
experience long winters with severe frosts.
