Correa calycina (Hindmarsh Correa)

Correa calycina is a South Australian correa which grows on Fleurieu Peninsula and is sometimes called Hindmarsh Correa.  It forms a very neat bush up to about a metre high and wide, with lemony coloured flowers and it is attractive to small honey eaters.  This is a newly planted one but it's already flowering which is quite gratifying (especially for the birds).  Correa calycina is a rare species which is considered to be threatened in the wild.
