I do not grow this plant...information only.

Found in wet soil in valleys and bordering stream banks, often with cottonwoods. It's range is from SE British Columbia east to extreme southern Quebec and New York. South to NW PA and west to TX and NM.

This is the common willow across the northern plains, and is essential in preventing erosion along riverbanks.

Salix is the old Latin name for the willows; amygdaloides refers to the leaves, which resemble those of a peach tree (from amygdalus, an old name for the peach).
