Description

Unlike other correas, Correa alba does not have a bell-shaped flower, instead the bell is split to form a four petal star.

This scrambling grey-green shrub flowers most of the year. White Correa is a dense spreading shrub which is often dwarfed by wind and salt spray. It is a useful plant for soil binding in front-line coastal plantings as it withstands salt wind and extended dry periods.
