Drummond Willow (salix drummondiana), is also sometimes known as Beautiful, Handsome, or Blue Willow. It can be found along the edges of water and prefers moist, heavy soil. It is found East of the Cascades in Washington, Montana, and in the Wallowa and Steens Mountains in Idaho, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, California, New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming. It also grows in the Yukon Territory, Alberta, and British Columbia. It grows in open form with widely spreading branches. Fun fact, Drummond Willow is preferred by moose in the winter.
