Salix Babylonica Tortuosa Hedging

Corkscrew Willow, Salix babylonica Tortuosa, is an unmistakable plant with with weeping branches and the famous corkscrew-like young stems. These curl around in uneven spirals, producing wavy, contorted leaves. It is a small to medium sized tree and very ornamental in winter, when the bare branches are fully visible. The young shoots are famous for use in flower arrangements. They both look great and last for ages because they put out roots in the vase and carry on growing! Corkscrew Willow can be grown as a screening tree up to about 8 metres high. Corkscrew Willow is a famous subject for bonsai.
