My 3rd species of Salix from Himachal (3700 m asl).


Thanks … for posting this beautiful willow!! This is male catkins of Salix hylematica Schneider (syn. S. fruticulosa Andersson; S. furcata Andersson).


I want to know the male catkins whether on terminal of branchlets, i’m not sure from the picture.


This should be Salix faxonianoides C. Wang & P.Y. Fu, Acta Phytotax. Sin. 12(2): 194–195, pl. 50, f. 2. 1974.

My 2nd species of Salix from Himachal (3700 m asl)
Possibly Salix denticulata?


This is also Salix hylematica.

My 4th Salix species from Himachal (3600 m asl) 


This species is Salix hylematica (syn. S. fruticulosa & S. furcata) showing female catkins


Interesting species. I have not seen it here in Uttarakhand.


This should be interesting … I photographed a dwarf species from above Tungnath, which I identified as S. hylematica from Flowers of Himalayas, which describes only two dwarf alpine shrublets. I excluded S. linleyana which is matforming species (this was not). I will upload soon after I am through with my Populus uploads, to have it confirmed or identified as something else.
