December 2017: Have just add the red flowered form of Correa lawrenceana var latrobeana to the collection. Normally greenish yellow, this is a rare red variety that appears to be localised in the Bentleys Plains area of East Gippsland. The variety grows into a large shrub up to 3m high. There are scattered populations in the area and some green flowered forms as well. They are growing as understorey shrubs in a tall Eucalypt woodland. The form is characterised by a very hairy calyx and long calyx teeth.
