Correa plants prefer temperate and warmer climates, so they’ll grow well in Melbourne’s weather. They’re drought-tolerant and can even survive our cold winters, as long as it doesn’t get too frosty.
However, correa plants dislike humidity, so you’ll need to factor that into your buying decisions. They’re quite unfussy when it comes to soil preference so long as it’s well-draining soil.
Taking all of these factors into consideration, you’ll find that correa plants are extremely low-maintenance.
Fortunately for gardeners, correa plants are highly resistant to pests and diseases. However, these hardy plants can be susceptible to scale, which you can remove using horticultural oils.
We recommend you monitor your soil moisture to prevent root rot. As we’ve said, correa plants do not do well in high humidity and need well-draining soil. Gravelly and sandy soil work well. If they sit in stagnant water, they may get root rot, which can be quite tricky to deal with.
Correa plants are highly versatile shrubs that can be used in various ways in the garden. Their height and spread make them an excellent fence covering, while their bushy girth makes them great for hedging (with a bit of pruning, of course.) They can also be used as centrepieces so that you can showcase their beautiful blooms.
The best thing about planting native correa plants is all the native wildlife they attract! Birds, bees and other insects will come rushing to sup on the nectar these plants provide, turning your garden into a flourishing ecosystem.
Yes, correa plants are endemic to Australia. They’re ubiquitous along the south and east coasts, and are loved by gardeners in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.
Well, since you asked, we’ve got a few favourite correa plant species:
As with many other plants, it’s good to lightly prune young correa plants to encourage dense growth. After their flowering season, prune back their flowers so they can spend their energy staying strong and healthy.
