Peachleaf willow is a small to medium sized tree with one to several trunks up to 12 m tall (40 feet). Peachleaf willow grows in riparian areas such as the banks of streams and ponds, low woods, roadside gullies, and prairie sloughs. Peachleaf willow is an overstory dominant species in many riparian ecosystems throughout the American west and midwest. Structurally complex riparian vegetation communities provide many different habitats and support a diverse array of animal species.
