Maintenance- Design- Planting Tips
What's not to like? Well, some Master Gardeners have found Correa to be short-lived in their home gardens. At the Palo Alto Demonstration garden this plant is still going strong after several years in the garden.
Look for some of the newer cultivars of Correa that have been bred to have flowers more visible above the foliage.
One more thing -- this shrub requires no deadheading or pruning. It is practically maintenance-free!
