Origin: Australia
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterPink flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowers

Correa is a genus of about 11 species although there are many forms which are difficult to allocate to any particular species.

It is typically a small shrub to about 1 metre in height but prostrate forms and forms reaching 3 metres are also known. Leaves often have conspicuous oil glands on their surface and may be covered with short hairs. The leaves are 10 to 50mm long and oval shaped. In some forms the leaves bend back against the stem giving the appearance of water stress.

The flowers are bell shaped and up to 40mm long. They may be pale green, red, red with yellow or cream tips or a number of other variations. The flowers produce nectar and attract honey eating birds. Flowering is usually winter to early spring.

Correas are not fussy, adapting to most mild, non-tropical climates. They do best in sun or part-shade in moderately fertile, free-draining but moist soil. Some species are inclined be short lived, and plants should be replaced every 3-5 years.

Family: Apocynaceae
Subfamily: Asclepiadoideae
Fuchsia Bud, Dildo Flower
Origin: Philippines
Vine or creeperSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

This is a very cute and unique plant from the Philippines and SE Asia that belongs to Hoya and Dischidia family. It's a vigorous growing vine with boat shaped leaves. Very easy to grow and it is a really good bloomer! A lot of Dischidias don't have the most showy flowers, but this plant has very cute fuchsia colored flowers, and the buds never fully open up! They look like little bulbs or dildos. Great as a house plant that doesn't need much maintenance. Grows well in hanging baskets in shade/filtered light and doesn't need a lot of water. The potting soil should be very well drained and porous.

Epacris longifolia
Family: Epacridaceae
Native Fuchsia, Fuchsia Heath
Origin: Australia
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

E.longifolia is common in moist sandstone gullies around the central coast of New South Wales (Australia). It is typically a fairly straggly shrub comprising several long, arching branches and is usually less than a metre in height. The leaves are small and triangular in shape with a sharp point.

The flowers are narrow and tubular, up to 40mm long and occur along the branches. They contain nectar and are frequented by honey-eating birds. The typical color is red with a white tip but some variations are in cultivation such as a fully white form.

The species should be given a well drained position in semi shade but should not be allowed to dry out.

Propagation of E.longifolia is usually by cuttings of firm current season's growth. Cuttings are probably best placed into individual small pots or tubes to minimise root disturbance.

Epilobium canum, Zauschneria californica
Family: Onagraceae
California Fuchsia, Hummingbird Trumpet, Firechalice
Origin: California
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Epilobium canum is a native of hot dry places on the west coast of North America. Here it thrives in the nutrient-deficient sun-baked soil, to which it has adapted by evolving water and starch-storing rhizomatous roots and tiny silvery leaves that reduce transpiration. These adaptations make it the perfect plant for rock and gravel gardens, raised beds or dry-stone walls, where it will offer an abundance of the most brilliant scarlet flowers from late summer to November.
