Drummond willow is suited to low- and mid-elevation areas of Eastern Washington, Oregon and Northern Idaho. It is tolerant of a wide range of soils and drainages provided sufficient moisture is present. It is well suited for streamside and wetland restoration, wildlife habitat improvements, erosion control, and shelterbelts.
