About Hairy Willow Herb

Hairy willow herb is a semi-aquatic perennial herb that grows 3-6’ tall, with fine, soft hairs covering the entire plant. The stems are tall and branching. It grows in open, moist habitats. Hairy willow herb forms dense, monotypic stands that can be found in open riparian areas along streams, ditch banks, wetlands and moist waste places. It can be found in undisturbed natural areas due to the seed easily spreading by wind, water or transported by humans or animals.
