Flowering

From Early Autumn TO Early Spring

Tubular flowers are borne in Autumn and through Winter

 

Planting

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

Correas like full sun and well drained, fertile soil which is acid to neutral. If grown in pots, plant in ericaceous compost and in full light, shaded from direct mid-day sun.

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Early Summer TO Mid Summer

Take semi- ripe cuttings from this season's growth in Summer. Cut neatly, just below a leaf node, a 5" approx. piece of a healthy shoot that has soft growth at the tip. pinch out the growing tip, and cut off the bottom leaves. Dip the bottom of the cutting in hormone rooting powder, and carefully place in a pot of cutting compost with the leaves just above the level of the compost. Water, label, cover with a polythene bag, and place in a warm, bright place, out of direct sunlight. Take the polythene bag off periodically for a while for ventilation (at least twice a week)
