DvurinG the ten years from 1887 to 1897 Garden and Forest, a weekly Jour- nal of Horticulture and Forestry, offered the opportunity for the prompt publication of information about trees and shrubs collected at the Arnold Arboretum. Since the publication of that journal was discontinued the Arboretum has had no organ on which it could depend to publish within a reasonable time the material which is gathered in its laboratories.

To overcome this difficulty the Arboretum will now begin the publication of a quarterly journal. In its pages will appear notes on trees and shrubs with descriptions of new species and their relationships, letters from cor- respondents, and notes on the vegetation of countries visited by officers and agents of the Arboretum. In the Journal of the Arboretum will appear also such items of news about the Arboretum, its library, collections, and projects which will interest botanists, horticulturists and other friends of the institution.

Since 1911 information in regard to the flowering and fruiting of some of the interesting plants in the Arboretum and their cultivation has appeared in Bulletins of Popular Information published at irregular intervals. The Journal of the Arboretum will not take the place of these Bulletins, which will be continued.

VotumME I JULY, 1919 NUMBER 1


In my conspectus of the Mexican species of Salix (Bot. Gaz. Lxv. 1-41. 1918) I stated that I had already made a rather extensive investigation of the forms belonging to the Pleiandrae * group (sect. igrae, Triandrae, Pentandrae subsect. Lucidae and Bonplandianae) ”’; I then dealt with all the forms of this group which are found from Mexico to South America. To-day I propose to give a key for the determination of all the American species and varieties of these sections, to discuss their geographical distribu- tion, and to deal with those forms of which I have not yet spoken in my paper cited above. The Pleonandrae group is well defined in so far as the male plants always have more than 2 (from 3 to 15) stamens, while all the other American Salix (except of course some hybrids) have 2 stamens or only one in S. sttchensis, S. Coulteri and S. Uva- Ursi.

Besides the rich material of the herbarium of the Arnold Arboretum I have been able to study the collections of the Gray Herbarium and of the herbaria of the Missouri Botanic Garden, of the Field Museum, of the Geological Survey of Canada, and of the Leland Stanford University; and I have had at my disposal part of the collections of the herbaria at Kew, New York, Reno and Washington.’ I wish to express my best thanks to

A very well-known eastern species the range of which seems to extend along the Atlantic coast from southern New Brunswick to northern North Carolina, and westward through northwestern South Carolina and northern

orgia (from where I have not yet seen typical material) to central and eastern Alabama (probably also to northern Missouri), southern Arkansas (where var. altissima is the prevailing form) and from northern Louisiana to northeastern Texas (where it seems to spread in the central parts as far south as Val Verde County on the Rio Grande, although most of the material from Texas belongs to var. Lindheimerii). The southern borderline of the range of S. nagra reaches its most western point at about 100° W. L., and from there runs northward through central Oklahoma and the eastern parts of Kansas, Nebraska, and South Dakota.! For the northern limit of its range may be taken a line running from about the 95th degree W. L. along the north shores of Lake Superior through southern Ontario and Quebec to southern New Brunswick. 8S. nigra does not occur in the south- west or west where it is represented by S. Gooddingii. In the south the typical form apparently passes by many intermediates into var. Lind- heimervi and var. altissima. Of peculiar interest are the forms of the south- east from Virginia to northern Florida because they show a smaller number of stomata on the upper surface of the leaves. While in the typical form as well as in var. altissima and var. Lindheimerti the number of the stomata is scarcely less on the upper than on the lower leaf-surface, these south- eastern forms sometimes only have a few stomata along the midrib and even these seem to be occasionally wanting. I have not yet been able to detect other characters to separate these forms from typical nigra but for two reasons I think it best to enumerate them below. Firstly, they cer- tainly need a further study, and secondly I wish to draw the special at- tention of all collectors to them, because the distribution of S. nigra in the southeast is very insufficiently known, and material of it from that

1! According to the map given by Hough S. nigra inhabits almost the whole state of Kansas, eastern half of Nebraska and South Dakota, the southeastern corner of North Dakota and arly the whole of Minnesota excep ne northwestern corner. I have not yet seen anne m the Dakotas and Minnesota es ecording to Lunell’s enumeration (Am, Midl. Nat. Iv. 197 [1916]) S. nigra is meets in North Dakota, and according pe tersen (Fl. Nebr. ed. 2, 69 [1912]) it occurs in Nebraska only in the eastern part of the state. It is absent from northern central and western Kansas (see Hitchcock in The Industrialist, xxiv. 323 [FI]. Kansas] [1899.] )


region in herbaria is very scanty. From the range given in Britton and Brown’s Flora or in Small’s Flora it would appear that S. nigra was dis- tributed along the whole eastern coast including Florida. In his Florida Shrubs 9 (1913), Small distinguishes two species from northern Florida with “‘ leaf-blades green beneath.” One he calls S. nigra, and the other S. marginata “‘ Weimer” [Wimmer]. The first apparently represents the form I refer to above, while S. marginata seems to me identical with the plant I describe as S. Harbisonii. As to the name marginata see later under S. longipes venulosa. Harper, in his Geogr. and Veget. of northern Florida (in Sixth Ann. Rep. Florida Geol. Surv. 401 [1914]) says under S. nigra Banks of streams, etc., mostly westward.” He probably too includes forms of S. Harbisonii which, as I shall explain later, often looks intermediate between S. nigra and forms of S. longipes. I have been able to examine the following specimens of what I believe is a form closely related to typical S. nigra from Virginia to northern Florida.

The var. falcata cannot in my opinion even be distinguished as a good form (see Blake’s statements in Rhodora, xv. 163 [1903]), and so far as I can


see it is hardly possible to separate any other forms but the two following. As to S. ambigua ali I can only say that it deserves its name until we ao a type specim . S. nigra var. "aitissima Sargent in Trees & Shrubs, 1. 216 (1913).

As the varietal name indicates this wil- low becomes the tallest American Salix growing up to the height of 40 m. The type was collected near Fulton on the Red River, Hempstead County, Arkansas, May 20, 1909, by the well-known collector B. F. Bush (No. 5654, fr.; A.). Except in its size it differs from the type only in the more pubes- cent young shoots, leaves and especially the petioles which are almost barbate-tomentose above and on the average are comparatively longer, and in the shape of its leaves which as a whole are more acute at the base thus resembling var. Lindheimerwi. Besides this var. altissima flowers a little later than the type where both grow together. I have seen specimens from Arkansas (Hempstead County), Louisiana (Caddo, Winn, Richland, Rapides, West Feliciana, New Orleans, St. Landry, Jefferson, Lafayette and Caleasieu Parishes), and from eastern Texas (Harrison, San Augustine, Polk, Walker, Harris, Houston, and Jefferson Counties) but some of the Texan forms need further study and may partly be referable to var. Lind- heimerit. Sargent suggested that S. marginata Wimmer might be identical with var. altissima, but Wimmer’s form belongs to S. longipes venulosa. S. denudata Rafinesque mentioned in the synonymy is an obscure species very badly described, but it seems to be referable to var. altissima.

2c. S. nigra var. Lindheimerii Schneider in Bot. Gaz. txv. 9 (1918). I have (1. c.) already dealt with this interesting variety which in some re- spects seems to form a connecting link between S. nigra and its southern representative, S. Humboldtiana (var. stipulacea), and I have enumerated the specimens examined from Mexico. In the United States it is found in the eastern part of central Texas and in southeastern Texas where I have seen it from the following counties: Grayson, Dallas, Tarrant, McLennan, Bell, Gillespie, Kendall, Comal, Bexar, Wilson, Calvado, Harris, Polk, Brazoria, Wharton, Matagorda, Victoria, Atascosa, Refugio; a specimen from Caddo County, Louisiana, is rather intermediate between var. altts- sima and var. Lindheimerti, and a sterile one from western Texas, Jeff Davis County (near Fort Davis, D. M. Andrews, No. 77; A.) belongs probably to those forms from Texas which I am unable to distinguish from typical S. nigra.| The var. Lindheimerii may also occur somewhere in southern Oklahoma along the Red River, and it seems to me to be con- nected by intermediates in the north with typical S. nigra, and more to the east with var. altissima, while in Mexico it comes very near S. Humboldt- ana as I have previously stated.

1S. nigra Coulter in Contrib. U.S. Nat. Herb. 1. 419 (1892), dei belongs partly to var.

Lindheimerit, and his var. Wrightii seems also to represent a form of S. n lad oan not Ae true S. Wright. A sterile ae n collected by C. R. Ball on the Bear thwest of Junction, Kimble County, August 25, 1909 (No. 1537; 0. ) has very ih cae ‘and looks

For further synonymy and literature see Schnei- der in Bot. Gaz. Lxv. 12 (1918). This species is widely spread in Cali- fornia from Tehama and Butte Counties in the north to the very south and to northern Lower California. Toward the east it is found in southeastern Nevada, Lincoln and Clarke Counties (where the type was collected), Ari- zona (except probably in the northern and northeastern part of the state), southwestern New Mexico (probably not north of Socorro County and not east of the Rio Grande), and northwestern Texas (E] Paso and Jeff Davis Counties). There is a specimen in Herb. N., collected by Frémont, “on road day we left Canyon Arkansas River Aug. 28,” 1845 (No. 4024, st.) which would mean Colorado if the locality is correctly given. I have seen no other specimen of our species from that state. The eastern and north- eastern limits of its range need further observation. It is clearly distinct from the eastern S. nigra for which it has been taken by most authors. There seem to be two forms which may be distinguished by the glabrousness or by the more or less copious pubescence of the young and the one-year- old branchlets; the more pubescent one would have to be taken for the

The type of this well-known species came from South Dakota where it was collected on the banks of the Missouri at Fort Pierre during the voyage of Prince Maximilian Wied-Neuwied. I have not yet been able to examine the type, but so far as I can judge by the material from South Dakota at my disposal the form of this state is identical with that of Missouri de- scribed by Glatfelter. Its range extends from Quebec (about 73° W. L.) to central New York (Onondaga and Tompkins Counties) apparently along the southern shores of Lake Erie (absent from Pennsylvania) through northern Ohio (where it has been observed according to Schaffner as far south as Franklin County) and northern Indiana (where I have seen it from Jasper and Wells Counties) to Illinois Missouri (where it is apparently ab- sent from the southern part of the state), Kansas to northwestern Oklahoma and the northwestern corner of Texas, but the forms of Oklahoma and Texas approach the western ones which may not represent typical S. amygdaloides. Further to the west it is found in Colorado (except prob- ably in the southwestern corner), Utah (here wanting apparently in the south) and Nevada (where, judging by the material before me, it does not seem to occur in the southern and central parts of the state). From Ne- vada the western borderline runs northward through central Oregon (Lake and Wasco Counties), southeastern Washington (West Klickitat to Whit- man County) to southeastern British Columbia (eastern Kootenay according to J.L. Henry). From here the northern limit of its range seems to follow about the 50th parallel to the Winnipeg region, from where it turns a little to the south through southern Ontario and northern Quebec to Montreal. On the map given by Hough it is shown farther north in Alberta and to central Saskatchewan and central Manitoba, but I have seen no material from as far north. In the southeast Hough includes the whole course of the Ohio in the range of S. amygdaloides but it is not mentioned by Porter from Pennsylvania, and I have seen no specimens from the lower Ohio where it is


said to be abundant by Sargent (Man. 171). This is probably a mis- take, as indicated above.

I am not sure whether the western forms really represent typical S. amygdaloides,' but there is certainly a form with puberulous or subtomentose young parts that deserves a special mention. Ball (1909) says that a form with very narrow leaves, scarcely 1 cm. wide, is found on the high plains east of the Rocky Mountains.” Iam not yet sure to which form he refers, and I wish to state that the western forms need a much closer study than I have been able to devote to them. It may be that the following form ought to be regarded only as a form of a western variety, and that even within the range of typical amygdaloides another corresponding form may occur. I only wish to call attention to this western form in proposing the name S. amygdaloides f. pilosiuscula, forma nov.: a typo ut videtur tantum recedit ramulis foliisque novellis pilosiusculis (? rarius ramulis petiolis foli- isque ad costam breviter subtomentosis; confer no. 902 Gooddingii); ra- mulis annotinis biennesque satis (ut fere in omnibus aliis speciminibus occidentalibus) flavescentibus, foliis superne stomatibus vulgo numerosiori- bus instructis, stipulis plus minusve acutis, amentis saepissime densioribus, fructibus magis approximatis. —I refer to f. pilosiuscula the following specimens:

In the south we find the following well-marked variety:

For further synonymy and literature see Schneider, |. ¢.; to the quotations may be added the following given under S. amygdaloides pro parte minima: Sargent in 1884, 1896 and 1905; Britton & Brown in 1896 and 1913; Small in 1903 and 1913; Hough in 1908.

Trees, 185, fig. 14% (1908), pro parte maxima. I am not yet well enough acquainted with this variety to decide the question whether it is possible to keep it as a distinct species. Judging by the following material! I prefer to regard it at present as only a variety, the geographical distribution of which needs further investigation, especially in southern Colorado to where its range seems to extend. Wright’s Willow seems to have also a puberulous form, but sometimes young specimens of S. Good- dingit are mistaken for it. Both have the same yellowish branchlets, and the very young leaves of var. Wrightii do not always show the glaucescent lower surface. Where the two Willows meet there may occur hybrids as it is frequently the case between S. amygdaloides and S. nigra.
