Twisted willow (Hedging)

Salix matsudana 'Tortuosa'

Hardy Tree

Commonly known as the Twisted Willow, or Corkscrew Willow, this deciduous tree is known for its bizarre contorted growing habits. Fast growing, Salix babylonica 'Tortuosa', soon produces growth that twists and turns like a corkscrew for no apparent reason, even the leaves will do the same. In spring, yellow catkins will appear on the bare branches before the bright green foliage makes an appearance. When grown as a hedge it is best to cut out older wood from the centre to allow new growth to appear, which will maintain interest. Supplied as 80 - 100cm bareroots (31 - 39") Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (13'). Planting Distance: 50cm (20") (3 plants per metre for a single line hedge).
