Correa are attractive small bushes from Australia with red or white tubular flowers, resembling Fuchsias. Many varieties notable for flowering through the winter.
The subdued but colourful Correa backhouseana (pictured) grows on the left wall as you leave the Visitor Centre. It is named afer botanist and missionary James Backhouse, of the wealthy Quaker/banker family of Darlington, who gathered it in Tasmania in 1833.
If the name Backhouse sounds familiar, it's because James is a relative of Edmund Backhouse who, through his wife Juliet Fox, inherited and owned Trebah from 1878-1906.
