Corkscrew Willow

This tree is grown for its branches more than anything else—which are great for winter interest. They're lovely with the leaves attached, but once the branches are bare you can see more easily how, wiry and twisted, they curl against the sky. This is a fast-growing tree and an easy accent. It's a wet area problem solver because this tree loves its moisture—it even thrives in a water garden. It'll tolerate a wide range of soils too, it can even grow in dry soil when properly established. An extra benefit of these gorgeous branches, you can clip them either alone for modern décor—home goods retailers sometimes sell these—or aiding in the architecture of your flower arrangements.
