Salix sp., or Native Willows, are deciduous trees and shrubs found primarily in moist soils. They grow quickly and are useful for controlling erosion. Willows are dioecious, with male and female flowers appearing as catkins on separate plants. The catkins are produced early in the spring, often before the leaves. Willows provide food and cover for many wildlife species. Grows at elevations from 2000-8000 ft. Plant in full sun to partial shade in moist soil.
