Salix longifolia. (S. rubra, Rich., not Huds. S. interior, Rowlee. S.fluviatilis, Sarg., and other recent authors in part, not Nutt.). Fig. 3527. Varying in stature from a low shrub to a small tree, usually growing along streams and lake-shores: twigs smooth and brown to densely tomentose and gray: buds plano-convex, with an obtuse and rounded apex, very small: lvs. nearly or quite smooth, sparsely canescent to extremely canescent, sessile, linear-elliptical, remotely dentate, the teeth narrow, sometimes quite spinulose: stipules conspicuous, ear-shaped, obscurely denticulate, deciduous: aments of late spring on short lateral peduncles, which bear 4-6 lvs., those borne later in the season on much longer leafy branches, very loosely fld.: fls. fascicled in clusters of 2-5 on the axis, a distinct interval between the fascicles, first appearing in May and often bearing a second set of aments in early summer; scales usually glabrous or somewhat hairy toward the base, narrowly oblong, yellowish, deciduous after flowering; filaments crisp-hairy below, smooth above: caps, sessile, clothed when young with appressed silvery hairs, becoming nearly smooth at maturity; stigmas short, sessile. Cent. N. Amer.—The pistillate ament, lax at anthesis, becomes more so as the caps. mature, and by this character the species can easily be distinguished from related species.
