-- -- --
A tall deciduous shrub that is native from Texas to California to B.C.. It has a grey leaf that is only 1/4 inch wide and 2-5 inches long. I have seen these in Lee Vining, and they were growing in an evermoist area in filtered shade (from Populus trichocarpa). The soil was granite-based. There are some of these growing 30 miles south of us in canyons, seeps, and above creeks in loam. The companions on this site are Forestiera pubescens, Quercus douglasii, and Adenostoma sparsifolium. There are still others growing in seasonally flooded areas of Palmdale. I could not pick more different sites.

Salix exigua tolerates clay and seasonal flooding.

Salix exigua's foliage type is deciduous.
Salix exigua's flower color is yellow.

Communities for Salix exigua:Creosote Bush Scrub, Pinyon-Juniper Woodland, Riparian (rivers & creeks), Sagebrush Scrub, Yellow Pine Forest and Central Oak Woodland.
