Dipholis salicifolia, commonly called willow bustic or White Bully, is a species of flowering plant native to Florida, the West Indies and Central America. It was previously considered a member of the genus Sideroxylon, with the binomial Sideroxylon salicifolium. Its specific epithet is derived from the Latin salix 'willow' and folia 'leaf'.
It is a small tree, 10–20 m tall, with smooth beige bark, spirally arranged leaves and small (1–4 mm) cream-coloured flowers borne in clusters of five to 12. The fruit is a small berry (6–10 mm long) with between one and three seeds. As it ripens, the fruit turns from green to reddish brown and then to dark brown when it is mature.
