Product Description

Corkscrew Willow - Size Shipped is 1-3 feet

 
The corkscrew willow (salix matsudana) makes a beautiful addition to any home's landscape. The corkscrew willow, also known as the curly willow, gets its name from the unique, twisted branches that cascade up and out from its trunk. The spiraled branches add quirky character to a picturesque tree.

Corkscrew willows are deciduous and grow rapidly. They can grow as much as 24 inches in one year's time. The signature twisted branches of a corkscrew willow arise from the trunk at an acute angle and then grow upwards and then outwards horizontally. Willow branches are known for growing out into a wide spread. From its branches grow narrow, light green leaves. These leaves grow to be approximately 4 to 10 centimeters long and around 2 centimeters wide. The flowers of a corkscrew willow, which are borne as catkins, bloom in the spring. Corkscrew willow flowers are a bright green color with white undersides. 

When planting, growing and caring for a corkscrew willow, there are various things to take into consideration. Their root system is short and will remain close to the surface of the soil. While the corkscrew willow can be grown in most types of soil, it does best in moist, well-drained soil. The corkscrew willow tolerates partial shade, but ideally should be in full sunlight. For optimal growth, the corkscrew willow needs to be watered often during its first year. After that, it should be watered generously during dry periods.

Corkscrew willows are frequently used in residential and recreational landscaping to provide shade. Whether it be for shade or just for aesthetics, the corkscrew willow makes a beautiful addition to any landscape.
