large willow in Hahamongna Park
There are many kinds of willow.
I don't know which. This is naturally grown in the river.

under the leaves were cramy white, and glabrous,
ovate to suborbicular shaped irregularly sinnuate toothed, slender catkins with some open capsules were present, new shoots were whitish gray, pubescent, older shoots were dark grayish brown, brownish seeds were around with cotton like hairs attached..."
Tall 20 foot tree. Slender twigs with alternate simple green leaves. Leaves with 6 main venations from the middle venation. Leaf oval with acute tip. Leaves pubescent on side. Flowers not bloomed yet. Notable characteristic is that leaves make "trembling noise" when shaken.
Large tree about 40 feet tall. Thick, gray bark with interlacing ridges. Twig very slender and yellow. Twigs and leaves hanging down. Leaves alternate and simple. Blades around 8 cm long and 1 cm wide. Leaves dark green and finely serrated.
Salicaceae or the willow family (although they contain more than just the willow genus, Salix) is a family of flowering plants. Recent genetic studies summarized by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group has greatly expanded the circumscription of the family to contain 55 genera.
