DescriptionRandom clones of black willow (Salix nigra) and sandbar willow (S. exigua) from near Stoneville, MS and of S. argebtinensis and S. babylonica X S. alba were grown in Sharkey clay near Stoneville, MS for 11 years. S. babylonica X S. alba grew best throughout the period. S. nigra, severely damaged by the cottonwood leaf beetle at age 1, was performing well by age 11, while the single clone of S. X argentinensis and 2 of the 3 clones of S. exigua had died.
