Spectacular Monthly Tree for May 2012 - Searsia lancea (Karee)

Searsia lancea (previously known as Rhus lancea) is an attractive, small to medium sized evergreen tree that is widely cultivated as a garden ornamental. This drought and frost tolerant species has a neat rounded crown with dark, olive green leaves and yellowish-brown fruit which is much relished by a variety of birds. The non-invasive root system makes this a highly suitable choice for small gardens as well as any built up and paved public areas. The rough bark is dark brown to blackish and is used for tanning while the fruit is pounded with water and brewed into a tasty beer. We currently have a large stock of really stunning specimens of this lovely tree available so pop in and see us and get yours planted now, before the onset of winter.
