Beautiful Curly Branched Willow Tree
The Corkscrew Willow tree is a small to medium-sized, upright spreading tree of about 30 feet in height with a 15-foot-spread.
This deciduous tree is also known as Tortuosa or Dragon's Claw Willow. The main ornamental feature of this plant is the contorted and twisted branches and twigs. Branches arise from the trunk at an acute angle and grow up almost parallel to the trunk before they curve back to the horizontal.
The winter branch pattern is most interesting and accounts for the popularity of Corkscrew Willow trees!
Corkscrew Willow trees tolerate any soil, especially wet soils with poor drainage. These are fast growing trees with narrow light green leaves.
Like most willows, Corkscrew will grow most vigorously in moist, cool soil and temperate climates!
