Description

Be the envy of the neighborhood with this fun and funky tree! Don't just like your landscape; love it with the Corkscrew Willow!

This isn't the boring, old tree next door! This unique willow boasts branches that twist and curl and curve and twist again. You'll love the dainty, but tough green willow leaves that also have a hint of the same twisted nature as the branches. It's rare to find a tree this size that is fast growing, but this tree grows to 20-30 feet tall and about 15-20 feet wide and is just that! Plan for the Corkscrew Willow to grow over 2 feet in a year. This groovy, fast growing tree grows in full sun to part shade and is adaptable to just about any soil. It will tolerate drier soil that it's Willow siblings, but does enjoy a moist, well-draining soil so avoid allowing the soil to go completely dry. This tree is deer and salt tolerant as well as disease resistant and low maintenance.

This willow is easy to grow and doesn't require pruning. If you do prune this tree do so in the dormant season and save those cuttings for super cool bouquets! Water is all this tree needs to thrive when planted in an ideal location. To reduce water requirements, mulch this tree in with about 3 inches of mulch.

Transform your landscape by adding a single tree! Say, "I am fun, funky, and fancy free" with the Corkscrew Willow! Get your new, favorite tree today before they sell out!

How To Care

When planting your Corkscrew Willow tree be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive. Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant your Willow tree almost any time of the year.

Corkscrew Willows thrive in full sun to part shade and are adaptable to almost any soil as long as it isn't dry. Water deeply 2-3 times weekly for the first 3 months after planting. This helps the tree's roots establish properly. You want to continue to keep the ground moist, especially for the first 2 years. Try using a Treegator and/or adding 2-3 inches of mulch to your young tree to reduce hand watering needs. Water your mature tree in dry periods. If your tree needs a boost, fertilize in early spring with our slow release fertilizer. Corkscrew Willows don't generally require pruning, but, if needed, prune when they are dormant in winter or early spring to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches, or to maintain shape. This Willow is deer and salt tolerant. For more tips, be sure to also check out our article on Shade tree care.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Corkscrew Willows rarely have issues with disease and are even resistant to Verticillium Wilt. Fungal issues can arise on occasion however. Usually treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. Scale and aphids can affect Willows. You can treat these pests naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin.

My tree was received a day later than promised, but it's bigger than I expected and seems healthy. Planting and care instructions are excellent. So far, so good.
