Baccharis angustifolia (most commonly known as saltwater false willow or just false willow) is a species of North American plants in the daisy family.[1] It is native to the Southeastern United States from Louisiana to North Carolina.[2][3]

Baccharis angustifolia is a shrub sometimes as much as 400 cm (13 ft) tall, with narrow, succulent leaves up to 6 cm (2.4 in) long. It is found on streambanks, in hammocks, and on coastal sand dunes.[4][5]
