Sandbar willow or the famous Salix interior is a native suckering shrub that grows 3 to 20 feet tall. It grows in the Northern Great Plains and the Northeast United States. It swiftly grows thickets on sandy soil or gravel deposits alongside streams, roadway ditches, slithers, and other flood-prone areas. The branches are reddish-brown and virtually smooth. The leaves are broadly lance-shaped, slightly pointed across both ends, having shallow, evenly dispersed teeth along the margins. 

These are green and glossy on both sides or silvery-silky on occasion. Stipules, if visible, are very tiny, and leafstalks are pretty short. Because this shrub is dioecious, it produces male and female blooms on different plants. The leaves of the sandbar willow fascine seem to be very thin and have serrated margins. Purple osier willow's blade edges are not toothed, and the blade width is higher. It also does not flourish in thickets. It is well suited to sandy soils in watercourse, river, and seashore environments. But not to other environments. The willow is predominantly present in the Western United States.

Sandbar Willow is a low-maintenance shrub once established. The plant stabilizes stream banks and lakeshores and builds or restores riparian areas. There are also good candidates for shallow wet lowlands, overflowing areas, wet meadow grounds, streambanks, lake coastlines, and other regions with a high water table. This shrub supplies wood, shelter, and nourishment for numerous game birds and deer. If not adequately managed, this plant can sometimes become a weedy or epidemic in particular areas or ecosystems, displacing valuable plants. Blowouts beside the stream must be addressed and corrected as soon as possible.

Growing 1-0 rooted stems and unrooted stems are both viable options. The rooted stems are preferable in drought-prone areas. Where humidity conditions are appropriate, unrooted stems should be employed. Plant rooted stems in the same ways as bare root seedlings. Seedlings that aren't yet rooted must be at least 12 inches long, with the bottom 10 inches submerged vertically in the soil. 2x2 to 4x4 row spacing performs well. Inland bioengineering systems, these sandbar willow fascines are also used. It should be mixed with other varieties for living fascines, brush layering, and brush beds, including Stream, Bankers, and 'Ruby' dogwood. It's a good idea to under seed with a cool-season grass variety.
