Corkscrew Willow 10.5 ft

The Corkscrew Willow is a fast growing ornamental tree that has beautiful twisting branches. The branches can be cut and used to decorate in the same way a pussy willow’s branches are used. They grow up to 30 ft tall.

Corkscrew willows are not picky about soil type but like all willows, they prefer a lot of water. The roots will invade sewer and water lines if planted too close, so be careful about planting location. They grow well in zones 5 through 9.

Our corkscrew willow was purchased in the fall of 2014, and we ended up planting it in a temporary location. It will be moved soon to its permanent location. (Picture will be updated.) Trees that are moved need a little extra water to make sure they survive the shock.
