Ember Chimes is one of the many selected seedlings from the Correa Chimes Range. This plant has vigour, maintains a dense habit, and forms a compact small low shrub. It is different to other Correa species because of its hybrid genetic parentage, and displays an abundant mass of orange dainty bell shaped flowers between autumn to late winter. The flower colour and type are similar to Autumn Blaze, Orange Glow, Ring A Ding Ding, Salmon Correa and Amber Chimes. Ember Chimes is an excellent low growing small shrub suitable for low border plantings and is very useful for smaller gardens, it also has the added bonus of providing nectar for bees and honey-eater birds over the cooler months.
Soil PH Conditions
Soil pH: 6.4 to 7.5 - Soil preparation: Soil can range from quite acid to alkaline in pH levels, it is important to have good soil preparation to gain the best results when planting natives. This improves the water-holding capacity of the soil and for young plants, once established, will have lower water requirements.
Grows well in both shade and full sun. It is adaptable to most well drained soils and is a versatile plant. Once this plant is established it will tolerate dry and light frost conditions, but over long periods of dry will require watering.
This plant requires little maintenance and it is best to initially feed with a slow release low phosphorus fertiliser to help first establish the plant. It is beneficial to follow up with the occasional reapplication of fertiliser and apply as required. Mulching around the base of the plant will help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
