Sickle-bush is a very hardy deciduous tree. It can withstand extreme frost and drought. It is a fast grower, has twice compound feather-like leaves and bear very attractive two-tone yellow and pink pendulous flowers. Initially Sickle-bush looks more like a shrub than a tree but it responds well to pruning and can be trained into a single trunk. 

A few gardening ideas:

Plant Dichrostachys cinerea for its attractive flowers and characteristic V-shaped form. It is an aggressive grower, with an invasive root system, and may proliferate if not controlled. It will fare well in a container and we recommend this method for a small garden. Sickle-bush is an ideal species for growing an impenetrable security screen. Dichrostachys cinerea is a popular bonsai.

Value to honeybees: Nectar, N0-1?;  Pollen, P0-3;  Flowering months 10-4, (11-1).   (See  blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)
