Correa 'Wyn's Wonder' (Variegated Australian Fuchsia) - This dense growing evergreen shrub grows to 2-3 feet tall by 3-5 feet wide and has very attractive olive-green leaves that have strong creamy colored margins. In the fall appear the one inch long rose-pink flowers that flare out at the tips to display their soft pink interior. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil. Irrigate regularly to only occasionally. A great plant for the border or large container. We do not know the origin of this plant but in the Appendix to the Encyclopaedia of Australian Plants authors Rodger Elliot and David Jones note that it is sport from the popular Correa 'Mannii'. It is also ocassionally listed 'Wyns Wonder' (w/o the apostrophe) or as 'Win's Wonder' / 'Wins Wonder'.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We also try to incorporate comments received from others and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Correa 'Wyn's Wonder'.
