Correa glabra 'Coliban River' (Coliban River Rock Fuchsia) - A small shrub to 3 to 4 feet tall by equal width with dense forest green foliage and pale greenish-yellow pendant lantern-shaped flowers from winter through summer. Plant in full coastal sun to shade and adaptable to most soil types. Moderately drought tolerant but best with occasional summer water. Cold hardy to at least 24F and reportedly tolerant of coastal conditions. Makes a great foundation plant or border shrub with unusual colored flowers. This plant was selected in 1986 from the wild near Coliban River at Kyneton, Victoria by Doug Pocock of Bindelong Nursery in Wandin North, Victoria. It was selected for its small dense habit - the usual form for the species is normally much larger. A 2011 Australian Plant Introduction from U.C. Santa Cruz Arboretum and Koala Blooms.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit.
