Rhus lancea

Realising how most species of the genus Rhus, (karee, taaibos or crow-berry) grow naturally in the Free State, a living collection of these trees has been established. This part of the garden contains about 20 karee species of different sizes, from large trees to small pretty shrubs. Karee trees are long-lived and produce high quality wood and have been used for making furniture and wagons in the past. The area is no doubt the pride of the garden and our visitors.
