Species of Willow
Chosenia is native to Korea, Sakhalin, Kamchatka and the Russian Far East. It has a sole member. It is a deciduous, willow-like wind-pollinated tree generally reaching a height of 20 to 30 m with a columnar crown and grey-brown peeling bark. The leaves have a very finely serrated to nearly entire margin, and an acuminate apex. The flowers are aggregated in pendulous catkins; it is dioecious, with male and female flowers on separate trees.
Dovyalis is a genus of shrubs and small trees. The 15 species are native to Africa (Ethiopia south to South Africa) and southern Asia (India, Sri Lanka). They are dense, thorny plants growing to 3 to 6 m tall, with sharp, stem spines in the leaf axils. Buds at the base of the spine produce clusters of alternately arranged simple ovate leaves. The flowers are inconspicuous, solitary or clustered, with no petals. The fruit is an edible, yellow to purple globose berry, containing several small seeds.
Idesia has only one species. It is native to eastern Asia in China, Japan and Korea. It is a medium-sized deciduous tree reaching a height of 8 to 21 m, with a trunk up to 50 cm diameter with smooth greyish-green bark. The shoots are greyish-brown, stout, with a thick pith core. The leaves are large, heart-shaped, with a red petiole bearing two or more glands; the leaves are dark green above, glaucous below, and have a coarsely serrated margin. The flowers are small, yellowish green, fragrant, and born in panicles. The fruit is a berry, ripening orange to dark purple-red, containing several brown seeds, and often persisting until the following spring.
Populus are deciduous plants that are native to North America. These fast-growing trees produce seeds with a cotton-like texture that are easily dispersed by the wind and carried for long distances. This natural disbursal process is beneficial as populus acclimate themselves to many different environments and provides shade and shelter in areas where tree growth is needed.
The various types of willows are common deciduous trees in the northern hemisphere. Often used in religious ceremonies, they have a variety of uses. They are grown for energy production under programs in Sweden that seek to harness the willows' biomass and process them as energy crops.
