Marshy area with large clones of Salix interior, and a few trees of Salix x fragilis.
A population of unusual appearance for this species, a patch 40 meters in diameter of apparently a single pistillate clone with clumps 0.5-1.5 m. apart, each consisting of (1-) 2-8 stems, but all uniformly 4.5-5 meters tall. Apparently the original clone had been cut mechanically during habitat reconstruction and these are stems of uniform age and several sprouting from each original single stem. Voucher for wood specimens at Kw, Lw, MADw, MEXUw, RSAw; this stem 4.3 cm. in diameter, ca. 8 years old. Pistillate; see Nee 63488 for a staminate clone.
