Hairy Correa grows in the Grampians in western Victoria in Australia and also in a limited area of South Australia. It is an open shrub, growing along streams and on mountain tops. The tubular flowers are green when new, but become purple as they age. Like most Correas, I would expect that it grows easily from cuttings, but I have no knowledge of this species in cultivation.
