Dodonea Viscosa ‘Sticky Hop Bush’ - 15x Seeds

Dodonaea viscosa, commonly called ‘sticky hop bush’, is a member of the Sapindaceae family. Dodonaeas are known as hop bush as they were used to make beer by early European Australians. Dodonaea viscosa has also been traditionally used by Aboriginal Australians to treat toothache, cuts and stingray stings.

An extremely hardy species and is able to resprout from the base. The stand-out horticultural feature of this species is the brilliant colour of the capsules. Other desirable features include its successful use as a hedge due to the dense habit.
