Corkscrew Willow

The Corkscrew Willow, which also goes by the scientific name salix matsudana, is a type of Willow Tree. Another nickname for this particular type is the "Curly " due to its unique curling branch shapes. It's often grown for the attractive colors that its leaves turn in the fall, the unique branching habit it exhibits, and the fact that it's a fast-growing tree. These trees are such fast growers, in fact, that you can expect to see 24 or more inches of growth each year until it reaches its maximum height of up to 30 feet, with a branch spread of 15 to 20 feet in width.

Corkscrew Willow Is A Very Fast-Grower

Like most fast-growing trees, the ideal place for it is in an open area with plenty of space for its expansive branches. It would be best placed away from driveways, the side of your home, and the street. This particular type of willow flourishes in soil that has a good moisture content, so a good water source nearby would be an ideal place for it to be placed. It can grow well in sunny or partly shady areas, and it's not too fussy about soil type, so it can grow just fine in loam, clay, or sand types of soil. They are hardy from the zones 4 to 8.

Corkscrew Willow Looks Fabulous In Landscapes

There are a handful of reasons that homeowners and those planting trees in public spaces, such as parks or nature preserving areas, would find the Corkscrew Willow a nice choice. Whether it's for the beautiful and vibrant colors that the leaves turn in the fall or for its interesting curling branch shape, it's definitely a unique addition to any landscaping project, so long as it is given enough space to grow and since it's a fast-growing tree, it can be enjoyed in its full height within a shorter time than a slower growing willow type.
