Dodonaea

Dodonaea (from the Greek name of a famous oracle of Jupiter). Sapindaceae.

About 50 species of trees and shrubs, widely scattered, but especially abundant in Australia. Leaves alternate without stipules, simple or abruptly pinnate, inconspicuous, solitary, or in racemes, corymbs, or panicles. The Reasoner brothers, of Oneco, Florida, introduced D. remotiflora and D. divia, "Switch Sorrel," from Australia, in 1889. These names are not found in Index Kewensis.
