Broom Karee Overview

The Free State is a haven for many different plant species, one of the most interesting in the family Anacardiaceae being Searsia erosa and it grows well in the garden. Its large, soft, yellow-green shape stands out in the landscape. Many Searsia species, either shrubs or trees, are popular garden plants. Their gene pool is large and hybridization (cross pollination) takes place easily.
