Salix caprea

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

Closely related is the grey sallow Salix cinerea, which has smaller, more oblong leaves. Like the many other members of the willow family, both are a valuable source of nectar for insects in the early spring, and support more kinds of moth than any species of tree other than oak and birch.

Pussy willow or goat willow is a small, many stemmed, deciduous tree or shrub. Closely related is the grey sallow Salix cinerea, which has smaller, more oblong leaves. Like the many other members of the willow family, both are a valuable source of nectar for insects in the early spring, and support more kinds of moth than any species of tree other than oak and birch.
