Salix humilis / Prairie Willow
Salix humilis is the Willow shrub for your dry soil conditions, as the common name “Prairie Wilow” might suggest. The species name humilis translates to “low” and was probably chosen because this plant grows 2 to 8 feet tall, which is shorter than some other members of the Salix genus. Plant in full to partial sun, in loamy, gravelly, or sandy soils. Easily propagated by sticking cuttings in the soil in the Spring, where they will form roots. Willow tea can be used as a rooting hormone for cuttings of other plants that don’t root as easily on their own.
