Correa Tucker Time Dinner Bells
Correa glabra x decumbens
Any number of honey-eating birds will join the queue when Correa Dinner Bells comes into flower and the nectar starts flowing. From mid-summer through to winter you can guarantee that the calls of happy birds will ring through your garden as they sup on the cream-tipped red bell flowers which festoon this compact medium shrub. Correa Dinner Bells retains a dense hedging habit with little attention, likes an open sunny or partially shaded spot in well drained soils in cool temperate, sub tropical and semi arid climates. It will happily take up residence in mildly alkaline soils in second-line coastal areas. Just prune it now and again to retain the neat shape.
