Hop Bush

Photo by Angie Perryman 11/30/11

Hop Bush (Dodonaea viscosa) is in the Soapberry Family (Sapindaceae), but I think its leaves look similar to those of the 'willows' we looked at yesterday. The Hop Bush leaves do tend to be oriented vertically (like the pads on prickly pear cacti); one of the adaptations to 'too much' sun.
