Searsia discolor Seeds

This attractive shrub is grown mainly for its fine foliage. Along with several other species in this genus, it is overlooked as a garden plant. Very little research has been done in terms of propagation and it is hoped that the information provided here will be useful to plant lovers, amateur botanists and gardeners and that it will stimulate interest and encourage cultivation of a wider range of these plants.

Searsia discolor is a tall, robust, erect shrublet, up to 1 m high, arising from a large woody rootstock, bark smooth, the many stems densely covered with hairs. Leaves are grey-green above, covered with thin hairs and greyish or white-felted below, margins curled back; three leaflets sessile (without stalks), forming a compound leaf. The contrast between the upper and lower surface is very attractive and the leaves are even more attractive when the upper surface turns red in autumn. The genus Searsia consists of herbs, shrublets, shrubs and trees. This shrub has typical Searsia flowers borne between October and May. The flowers are small, greenish to yellowish, sometimes whitish flowers, normally in clusters between the top leaves and sometimes protrude above the leaves. As in other Searsia spp., male and female flowers occur on separate trees and only females form fruits which are drupes. The grassveld currant has round, smooth and yellowish brown fruit. Searsia discolor is sometimes confused with broad-leaved forms of Searsia rosmarinifolia.
