Willow, Salix spp.

Iowa has six native willow species — Missouri, Pussy, Shiny, Peach Leaf, Black, and Sandbar. 

Willow leaves are all similar – alternate and simple, long and thin. I look for leaves because their silhouettes are all varied — bushes, sticks growing out of a sand bar, large trees – both weeping and upright (see photos). 

Willows are great pollen sources in early spring.
