It is now also widely established in North America as an introduced species. The shrub can fix nitrogen in its roots,[2] enabling it to grow on bare mineral substrates. In Iran, the dried powder of the fruits is used mixed with milk for rheumatoid arthritis and joint pains. It is also one of the seven items which are used in Haft Sin or the seven 'S's which is a traditional table setting of Nowruz, the traditional Persian spring celebration. Cultivation and invasiveness[edit] The species was introduced into North America in the late 19th century, and subsequently escaped cultivation, because its fruits, which seldom ripen in England,[4] are relished by birds which disperse the seeds.

Ţăra­nii se odihnesc la umbra sălcioarelor când obosesc să prăşească, iar copiii roiesc în jurul lor, de­lectându-se cu fructele mici şi dulci, pe care le extrag cu atenţie dintre spinii lungi şi ascuţiti. În timpul iernii, de fruc­tele rămase pe crengi se bucură nespus păsările ce iernează la noi. Este una din puţinele plante ce ne oferă rod abundent în fiecare an, indiferent de starea tim­pului.Numită şi salcie mirositoare, Sălcioara provine din zonele sudice cu o climă extrem de caldă, de aceea rezistă în condiţii mai puţin favorabile, chiar şi la arşiţe de 50 de grade. Elaeagnus angustifolia – salcioara, salcia mirositoare. Nici nu apuca sa se treaca parfumul salcamilor si un alt arbore isi deschide florile.
