Leaf: later stipules leaf-like; petiole 3--7 mm; young leaves silky; mature blade 58--144 mm, strap-shaped to oblanceolate, convex or acuminate (base convex to wedge-shaped), entire to irregularly toothed, +- rolled under, abaxially generally sparse- to dense-tomentose or -woolly, hairs wavy. Inflorescence: blooming before leaves, pistillate 19--59 mm, on leafy shoots 0--1 mm; flower bract +- tan to light rose. Staminate Flower: stamens 2. Pistillate Flower: ovary tomentose, stalk 0--0.4 mm, style 0.4--0.8 mm; nectary narrow.
Ecology: Serpentine streamsides; Elevation: 300--1300 m. Bioregional Distribution: NCoR, SnFrB, n&c SCoR. Flowering Time: Mar--Apr
Unabridged Note: Hybrids with Salix lasiolepis in Yolo Co. have leaves less hairy, fruit long, slender, stalked, glabrous in age, as does Salix delnortensis, but have, compared to Salix delnortensis, shorter petioles, flexible twig bases.
