Correa lawrenceana var. grampiana, commonly known as Grampians mountain-correa, is a variety of Correa lawrenceana that is endemic to Victoria, Australia. It is a shrub with elliptical leaves and cylindrical, velvety flowers covered with matted, woolly cream-coloured to yellowish brown hairs.

The flowers are arranged singly in leaf axils on a down-turned pedicel 2–5 mm (0.079–0.197 in) long. The calyx is cup-shaped, 5–7 mm (0.20–0.28 in) long, covered with woolly, rust-coloured hairs and with a wavy rim.
