Raup’s Willow is a rare plant that prefers gravel floodplains and treed bogs. It has a very restricted distribution and has only been found in two locations in the south-western NWT, three in the Yukon, three in British Columbia, and two in Alberta. Although Raup's Willow was first described in 1974, genetic work is still required to verify the taxonomy of this species.

This species has not yet gone through the processes to assess and list species established by the Species at Risk (NWT) Act or federal Species at Risk Act (SARA), but it has been ranked by the NWT General Status Ranking Program.
