Correa pulchella (salmon correa, Australian fuchsia) is a species of flowering plant in the family Rutaceae. It is small evergreen shrub, endemic to South Australia. It grows to 0.3–1 m (1 ft 0 in–3 ft 3 in) in height and 1–2 m (3 ft 3 in–6 ft 7 in) in width. The leaves are linear-oblong to broadly ovate. The pendent, tubular flowers appear between April and September in the species' native range. These are pink-red, orange, or rarely white, and have yellow anthers.

Correa pulchella is regarded as one of the most attractive Correa species. It prefers dry summers with low humidity and well-drained alkaline soils. Propagation from seed is difficult, however semi-mature stem cuttings strike readily. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
