Peachleaf willow is the largest of many willows of the western prairies, and it is often the only large native tree on the prairies other than the cottonwood. It is also found with cottonwoods along the edge of streams or rivers. Like many other tree-sized willows this tree often has multiple sloping main stems, reaching 15 feet or more in height.
