Searsia chirindensis Prev. Rhus chirindensis

This neat ornamental tree (a good example outside the main entrance to the Park) has a dense rounded crown of attractive glossy dark-green foliage that becomes orange in Autumn. Large sprays of minute yellow-green flowers are followed by a profusion of small lightly fleshy edible fruits.
