Diamondleaf willow grows from the southern Yukon Territory south to California and New Mexico, and east across boreal Canada to eastern Canada and New England. It is restricted to mountainous terrain in the western United States.
Diamondleaf willow is a small-to-medium-sized deciduous shrub. The bark is gray and smooth. The flowers occur in about 1- to 2-inch-long (2.5 cm), erect catkins on the previous year's twigs.
Diamondleaf willow flowers appear in the spring before or sometimes with the leaves.
