Bubba desert willow

Willows, sallows, and osiers form the genus Salix, around 400 species[2] of
deciduous trees and shrubs, found primarily on moist soils in cold and
temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Most species are known as
willow, but some narrow-leaved shrub species are called osier, and some
broader-leaved species are referred to as sallow (derived from the Latin word
salix, willow). Some willows (particularly arctic and alpine species) are
low-growing or creeping shrubs; for example the Dwarf Willow (Salix
herbacea) rarely exceeds 6 cm (2 in) in height, though spreading widely across
the ground.

Willows are very cross-fertile, and numerous hybrids occur, both naturally and
in cultivation. A well-known ornamental example is the Weeping Willow (Salix
× sepulcralis), which is a hybrid of Peking Willow (Salix babylonica) from
China and White Willow (Salix alba) from Europe.
