Salix planifolia is another northern species apparently restricted to the Lake Superior Region of Wisconsin and Michigan. This species might be confused with the common Salix discolor.

The willow species are quite variable and difficult to distinguish and any "shortcuts" around the proven keys are likely to result in frequent errors. See the key to willows for helpful characters to identify the species, or try the more thorough keys in Michigan Flora vol 2.
