Salix babylonica / matsudana Tortuosa Saplings. Dragon's Claw Willow

Corkscrew Willow, Salix babylonica Tortuosa, is an unmistakable plant 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. 

See our selection of willow trees or our full range of hedging.

Corkscrew Willow trees are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All of our young trees and shrubs are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Did You Know? 

Although this is a Chinese tree, the name Salix matsudana comes from the Japanese botanist Sadahisa Matsudo (1857-1921). He compiled the first modern books on Chinese plants in the late 1800s. It is a famous subject for bonsai. 

This popular Willow is known by many epithets worldwide, including: Corkscrew, Twisted, Curly, Chinese, Peking, Babylon, Navajo, Globe, Hankow, and Dragon's Claw.
