Peachleaf Willow

Salix amygdaloides

Native

Peachleaf Willow is native to Canada and the United States, typically growing up to 20 meters tall making it a large shrub or small tree. It can be found in Southern Ontario and the Prairies, often in moist soils close to rivers, lakes and wetlands.

Peachleaf willow provides food and shelter for many birds, mammals and insects. The dense root structure of this willow is useful for preventing stream bank erosion.
