Australian Plants for Waterwise Gardens

By Maria Hitchcock

Over the past 20 years, the garden plant Correas, also known as the Australian Native Fuchsia, has been steadily growing in popularity in regions around the world. Ideal for temperate and coastal gardens, Correas are generally small shrubs that fit into any garden or space, can be grown in either full sun or shade, and are compatible with other shrubs. They require a minimum of watering and maintenance, making them an excellent choice for people who want a nice garden, but have little time. This is the first comprehensive guide to the identification and cultivation of Correas in Australia. It describes 10 species, 26 subspecies, and 145 varieties. The book contains detailed descriptions, as well as chapters on cultivation and propagation, and will be a guide to attracting birds to the garden. It will be an excellent reference for gardeners, nurserymen, native plant enthusiasts, and botanists.
