A beautiful winter flowering evergreen with pale yellow green tubular flowers from November through to spring. Attractive grey foliage. Sun, good drainage and shelter in cold areas.
This species adapts to most soils and can tolerate salt spray as well as wet ground for short periods.
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.
The species is now believed to be extinct in the wild. This is one of the rarest plants in cultivation today. It comes from cool cloudforests, so it prefers moderate temperatures, cool nights, and some protection from strong afternoon sun.
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.
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 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.
This fuchsia is easy to grow whether in container or in the landscape.
Fuchsia boliviana has large drooping corymbs up to 20 cm long borne in late summer and autumn of scarlet red flowers . A white-flowering form exists named 'Alba', with a white tube and scarlet petals.After flowering it bears small red-purple, edible fruit 10–26 mm long.
Fuchsia fulgens often grows as an epiphyte in trees or on rocks.
The edible fruit is gathered from the wild and consumed locally. The plant is grown as an ornamental in gardens.
This species is a parent of many ornamental cultivated greenhouse varieties.
