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'.  The information presented on this page is based on research that we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens we have visited, as well how it performs in our nursery crops out in the field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information that would aid others in growing Correa 'Wyn's Wonder'.
