Thanks, Silversurfer. I was wondering about that since I could not find any other species listed when I googled Salix on Baffin Island. The locals told me that the willow always stayed prostrated and did not actually grow bigger leaves as we see them farther south.

What an adventure Baffin Island must be! It isn't very well explored. I'm sure there is lots of stuff we don't know about. A PhD professor friend of mine (and expert on Salix) brought back Salix arctica from Baffin Island. Also, be a aware that male and female catkins often don't look the same.

Salix arctica! That's it. Thank you, Leftwood.

Yes, Baffin Island is most fascinating.
