SALIX exigua (Sand Bar Willow)

0602 “Native to western North America, including British Columbia, Washington, Oregon to California and west to New Mexico. A favorite hiding place for coyotes!

S. exigua, due to its colonizing ability, is excellent for streambank stabilization. It is also flexible when high water flows over it, does not mind being covered during high water periods, and rebounds quickly if beavers eat it.

The USDA has published a very interesting online pamphlet called Coyote Willow.

Muriel says: when I walk around our blocks of willows, S. exigua is a standout for its grace and airiness. It is my favorite willow based on its appearance.”
