The name Correa honors JosÚ Francisco Correia de Serra, a Portuguese botanist and the specific epithet 'reflexa' is a Latin word meaning "turned back", referring to the angle at which the leaf-like bracts above the flowers join the stem. We discontinued growing this plant in 2007.  The information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing  Correa 'Carpenter Rocks'.
