Eastern Europe and Caucasus.

Introduced into Western Europe, where it readily hybridized with S. alba, giving rise to an extensive hybrid population named S. x fragilis. The name S. fragilis Linnaeus has been used in the past for S. euxina, but it is not a valid scientific name, because it has also been used in relation to another taxon, S. x fragilis
