Dodonaea viscosa subsp. cuneata

Scientific NameDodonaea viscosa subsp. cuneata
CategoriesShrub
Common Name(s)Wedge Leaf Hop Bush
FamilySapindaceae

Description

"Compact, spreading shrub to 3 m." (Flora of Australia)

Notes

Dodonaea viscosa subsp. cuneata is frequently used in mine rehabiliation work in NSW and Qld. We commonly encounter this taxon within Eucalyptus moluccana woodland to open forest. Seed collections in drier years may prove unviable as the winged-capsules upon threshing may be found to hold too little seed.

Historical Notes

Distribution

"Occurs in south-eastern Australia; in the Murray Mallee region of S.A., in north-western Vic., on slopes and plains W of the Great Dividing Range and in the upper Hunter Valley area of N.S.W., and in south-eastern Qld." (Flora of Australia)
