  1. Salix caprea

    Salix caprea is a common species of willow native to Europe and western and central Asia. It is a deciduous shrub or small tree, reaching a height of 8–10 m, rarely to 13 m. The leaves are 3-12 cm long and from 2-8 cm wide, broader than most other willows. The flowers are soft silky, and silvery 3-7-cm-long catkins are produced in early spring before the new leaves appear; the male and female catkins are on different plants. The male catkins mature yellow at pollen release, the female catkins mature pale green. The fruit is a small capsule 5-10 mm long containing numerous minute seeds embedded in fine, cottony hairs. The seeds are very small with the fine hairs aiding dispersal; they require bare soil to germinate. The two varieties are: ⁕S. c. var. caprea - lowland regions throughout the range, leaves thinly hairy above, densely hairy below, 5-12 cm long, stipules persistent until autumn ⁕S. c. var. sphacelata Wahlenb. - high altitudes in the mountains of central and northern Europe, leaves densely silky-hairy on both sides, 3-7 cm long, stipules early deciduous
