S. Australia. We have grown Correa pulchella outdoors for many years but were originally hesitant to sell it because it was reputed to be borderline hardy for us. It is an evergreen, low branching shrub with dark green elliptical leaves. Bears inch-long, bell-shaped, pink flowers with pale yellow lips at a surprising time of year. Keep in a sheltered position.

Autumn to winter.  2 ft. x 3 ft.

Dusky Pink flowers

Sun     Zones (8), 9, 10
If you have overwintering hummingbirds they will appreciate this addition to your garden.
