Silver Leaf Willow

One of the most common willows in Canada. This shrubby willow is common in swampy, peaty, shorelines (bogs and fens). Rarely over 6 feet in height.

A great native species for reclamation or naturalization projects in riparian zones.

All willow are important to native pollinators each spring as they have higher amounts of pollen and nectar early each growing season when other food sources are scarce.

Native to North America, Silver Leaf Willow has orangish bark and long, silvery grey leaves. Bees and other insects are attracted to its flowers.

Popular as an ornamental tree for parks, it is also used as a shelterbelt species. It may not be as cold hardy as some of the other willow varieties, however.
