Pictures of leaves from a few willow species

Willow cultivar Millbrook on top, a male selection of  a native species, Salix discolor on the bottom.  All photos taken November 11, 2017 in Eaton Rapids

Millbrook on top and cultivar Onondaga on the bottom.

Millbrook on top and Fabius on the bottom.
Millbrook was chosen for the "control" because it seems to do as well or better than other selections across a wide range of planting sites.  It certainly carries a generous number of leaves in the canopy even this late in the growing season.  It also roots very well from hardwood cuttings.
