The whole chloroplast genome of Salix suchowensis was determined in this study using next generation sequencing data. The total genome size was 155,214 bp in length, containing a pair of inverted repeats (IRs) of 27,459 bp, which were separated by large single copy (LSC) and small single copy (SSC) of 84,077 bp and 16,219 bp, respectively. The overall GC contents of the chloroplast genome were 36.73%. One hundred and ten unique genes were annotated, including 76 protein coding genes, 30 tRNA genes and 4 rRNA genes. Among these, 18 are duplicated in the inverted repeat regions, 14 genes contained 1 intron, and 3 genes (rps12, clpP and ycf3) comprised of 2 introns.
