Dodonaea viscosa is a pantropical shrub or small tree with numerous medicinal and other practical uses. The shiny upper leaf surface is the reason for the common name, varnishleaf. The odd shape of the three-lobed fruits is reminiscent of the hops used in beer-making, and the inspiration for the alternate common name of Florida hopbush. In south Florida varnishleaf is found in pinelands and hammocks. There are about 60 species in the genus Dodonaea, most restricted in distribution to Australia.
