    willow of the western United States with leaves like those of peach or almond trees


  1. peachleaf willow

    Salix amygdaloides, the peachleaf willow, is a species of willow native to central North America east of the Cascade Range. It can be found in southern Canada and the United States—from western British Columbia to Quebec, Idaho, Montana and Arizona to eastern Kentucky.It is a small to medium-sized deciduous tree, growing to 4–20 metres (13–66 ft) tall; besides the cottonwoods, it is the largest tree native to the prairies. It has a single trunk, or sometimes several shorter trunks. The leaves are lanceolate, 3–13 centimetres (1+1⁄4–5 in) long and 1–4 cm (1⁄2–1+1⁄2 in) wide, yellowish green with a pale, whitish underside and a finely serrated margin. The flowers are yellow catkins, 3–8 cm (1+1⁄4–3+1⁄4 in) long, produced in the spring with the leaves. The reddish-yellow fruit matures in late spring or early summer, and the individual capsules are 4–6 millimetres (3⁄16–1⁄4 in) long.The peachleaf willow grows very quickly, but is short-lived. It can be found on the northern prairies, often near streams, and accompanying cottonwoods. As the common and scientific names suggest, the leaves bear some similarity to those of a peach and (even more so) of an almond.


  1. peachleaf willow

    The peachleaf willow (Salix amygdaloides) is a species of willow native to North America, which is often considered a medium to large-sized tree or shrub that grows in moist or wet habitats. It gets its name from the shape of its leaves, which bear resemblances to those of a peach tree. It can be recognized by its slender, yellow-brown branches, its long, light green leaves that turn yellow in the fall, and its seed-bearing catkins. It is mainly used for soil conservation and stabilization in its native regions.
