This is Salix alba cv. ‘Tristis' (commonly known as golden weeping willow).
Due to its weeping nature looks very similar with Salix babylonica. It can be identified through its bright golden yellow twigs
Very beautiful pictures ...

Salix alba cv. ‘Tristis’
This is my concluding post for the Salicaceae Fortnight. In human culture most of the major occasions in their lives are associated with nature and especially with plants. Many rituals in our country required plants or their parts.
As you know today is a special day …so I share a related picture of that.
The same plant, the same location but in two different seasons
Thanks ... for sharing these very beautiful and special pics....
The plant is elegant in all the seasons....

Attached are pictures of Salix alba (that is what the placard said) from Central Park, New York, USA in May 2013.
Requested to please validate ID.
Fantastic photographs ... Thanks for posting this wonderful cultivar.
This is Salix alba cv. ‘Tristis’. It is a popular cultivar that is commonly sold as golden weeping willow in recognition of its bright golden yellow twigs and weeping form.
Thanks ... for the ID and the appreciation..
It really looked very beautiful with its long branches touching the lake...


Attached is a lone picture of a Salix that I have.
It is captured from a cultivated garden in Michigan, USA in May 2013.
Is it possible to ID this based on this pic.

This is also Salix alba cv. ‘Tristis’. It looks very similar with Salix babylonica

HP, Oct 2014 :: Requesting ID - small sized tree:: ARKNOV-46 : 7 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (3)
Starting on a new series, having visited Manali and Dharamshala in October this year.
Saw many new trees and flowers, but all new to me.
Hopefully all the uploads will be identified with so many experts on Himalayan flora...
Requesting to please provide ID of this short tree captured near Kothi, Manali, HP in October 2014.
Is this some Salix species?
Yes, I agree with you, a Salix sp., but I cannot go further..
catkins in end of winter to early spring might help … so as is I agree with ...
...Salix sp.- Planted for soil erosion, as avenue along roadsides and for fuel &  fodder as well.
Pl. check Salix alba L. as per comparative images at Salix

Location: Kagbeni, Mustang, Nepal

Altitude: 10500 ft.
Salix .... ????

It is Salix species.

Salix species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net)


Salix disperma Roxb. ex D.Don ??
I do not think so as per GBIF  Specimen 

Pl. check species available in your area in GBIF and Efloraofindia.
I remember observing similar species from Spiti valley. But not able to have any opinion.
Pl. check Salix alba L. as per comparative images at Salix

Looks matching unless it is introduced in Nepal. No distribution in any sites.

Yes … S. alba
