Salix spp., S. babylonica
I have always had willows around me wherever I've lived. I played under them as a child and planted them as an adult. I've come to love them but even I admit that while they're beautiful, they're hardly showy. It's surprising how large an impact this plant has had on human lives and how long ago we met. Let's get started. I look forward to getting to know my old friend better.
