Sageleaf Willow


(Salix candida)

The Sageleaf willow is a short lived, fast growing, low shrub native to most of Canada and the Northern United States. It commonly grows in bogs, riverbanks and generally wet areas.

Young twigs are densely covered with fine hairs (pubescent); older twigs gray-brown to yellow. Leaves are narrow, slightly hairy above and densely wooly beneath. Sageleaf willow can be susceptible to pest and disease issues.
