Salix dmmmondiana Barratt
In the Canadian Rockies, as late summer arrives, this willow is
clothed in its most beautiful garb. Each branch is adorned with loose
masses of fluffy cotton, consisting of the seeds and the adhering
plumes. These masses are blown far and wide by the wind, and if the
plants happen to grow near streams, a windrow of cotton often ac-
cumulates along their moist margins. Later this is caught by the water
and carried far down stream.
Drummond willow has a narrow range, being confined to Alberta
and British Columbia.
The sketch was made from a specimen that grew at Sheep Creek
seventy-five miles by trail from Lake Louise, Alberta, at an altitude
of 6,000 feet
