Searsia Overview

The Searsia genus contains 111 accepted species that are native to Tropical Asia, Sicilia, Africa and temperate Asia. This genus contains species of herbs, shrublets, shrubs or trees and can be either deciduous or evergreen in habit. Many species were thought to be part of the Rhus genus but have recently been re-classified into Searsia. The genus is named after Paul B Sears (1891-1990) who was head of the Yale School of Botany.
