Alaska bog willow occurs throughout most of the Alaskan boreal forest except in the Aleutian Islands and the along the southeastern coast of Alaska. Outside of Alaska, its range extends from the Yukon Territory to the Hudson Bay.
Alaska bog willow is a native, low-growing, much-branched, trailing deciduous shrub 4 to 12 inches (10-30 cm) tall. Male and female flowers occur on separate plants in 0.75 to 1.5 inch (1.9-3.8 cm) long catkins. The fruit is a two-valved capsule.
Alaska bog willow flowers in June; the fruits ripen in July.
