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.
