corkscrew willow

Salix Matsudana

Corkscrew willow
Corkscrew Willow as its common name suggests has contorted twisted branches and twigs. This gives it an interesting and attractive ornamental feature especially in winter. It’s a medium sized, fast growing tree. Like many willows this tree does best in moist conditions – it will tolerate some drought as it matures. The branches grow at an acute angle to the trunk and then curve back to a more horizontal position.

Height: 25′ – 35′

Width: 15′ – 20′

Exposure: Full sun.

Fruit / Flower: Insignificant.
