Salix species ?

The photo above shows the upper and lower surfaces of an unidentified willow seen along Road #23 about one-third mile south of the junction with Rd #8810 at the southwestern corner of Mt. Adams.............September 25, 2005. Sorry, no floral parts were evident on the plants seen.

The photo above shows a close-up of the sparsely haired dorsal surface of the basal portion of the leaf blade and its large stipules.
