Nine strangers walked into a garden...

Postby MJL » November 26th, 2018, 6:33 pm

Hi Folks,

Dad gave me 9 of these - for some reason he was not a huge fan. I liked ‘em so they came my way. Any thoughts on an ID please. Notice the lovely tubular flower.

Could be Eremophila maculata?

Definitely Correa. They do tend to be relatively short lived so I'm not sure about putting a lot of work into creating fantastic correa bonsai but if you can make something quickly it should be a good use of your time and resources.
