Twisted willow (Hedging)


Twisted willow, also known as the Corkscrew Willow, is a deciduous tree known for its bizarre, contorted growing habit. Salix babylonica ‘Tortuosa’ grows quickly, producing stems that twist and turn like a corkscrew – even the leaves do the same! Yellow catkins appear on bare branches in spring, with bright green foliage following on. For hedging, it is best to cut out older wood from the centre, allowing new growth to appear and maintain interest.Supplied as 80 – 100cm bareroots (31 – 39) Height: 12m (39′). Spread: 8m (13′).
