General tree description
Diselma archeri is a small, bushy tree, with an irregular crown, reaching up to 6 metres tall in its native habitat but in cultivation more commonly around 2 metres. Its bark is scaly, reddish-brown when fresh, darkening to greyish-brown. The leaves are scale-like and tiny, reddish when young, but soon turning deep green. The cones are also small (2 to 6mm), with male and female cones borne on separate plants. Each female cone produces up to two small winged seeds.
