Corkscrew Willow

Unique Tree with Year-Round Interest


Corkscrew Willow Tree is a deciduous tree best known for its unique twisted branches.  One would certainly draw attention and comment as a specimen planting in your front yard.


Your Corkscrew Willow is also sometimes known as Dragon’s Claw for its gnarled, contorted limbs.  Branches arise from the trunk at an acute angle and grow up almost parallel to the trunk before they curve back horizontally. 


Corkscrew Willow’s appearance is at its best advantage in the winter when the foliage has fallen to reveal the one-of-a-kind branches.  However, it also shines in the warmer months beginning with its pale yellow catkins in spring. 


As the catkins fade and the foliage develops, you’ll love the 4-inch long, lance-shaped leaves.  The leaves contribute to your tree’s unconventional display with their curled nature. The green foliage, with white-tinted undersides, twirl in the slightest summer breeze. 


In autumn the foliage turns to a lovely golden yellow hue for a last gasp of color before the tree’s winter appeal is revealed.


Corkscrew Willow grows 20-30 feet tall and develops a symmetrical, rounded crown.  It is more drought tolerant than most willows and fast-growing. 


Corkscrew Willow prefers full sun, but you can still have one in part shade if you prefer.  In fact, it’s relatively tolerant of most soils and conditions. 


If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind tree that’s sure to draw attention with its year-round interest, Corkscrew Willow is the tree for you!

Corkscrew willows become noticeable in the landscape quickly because of how fast they grow and of course their unique branches.

I cut off the ends of newer branches and use this crooked branches in planters and in flower vases. I think they are quite decorative.

I bought one of these corkscrew willows just to see the branch formations. They look just like your picture. They are neat to look at.
