There's No Weeping with this Willow Tree

Fast growing and full of grace, the Corkscrew Willow will make an eclectic addition to your garden or landscape that will set it apart from all others.

As its name implies, the Corkscrew's interesting branch system twists horizontally and forks vertically, giving it a distinctive look your neighbors will admire.

A Tree with a Twist-There's something for Every Season

As the tree grows, it offers a variety of visual benefits with each season.

Springtime brings delicate buds that sprout upon twisted branches, followed by graceful summertime leaves that help provide shade.

As autumn approaches, the Corkscrew Willow's leaves morph to a brilliant yellow that's sure to draw attention.

Create a Winter Wonderland in your own Backyard

In the winter when the leaves are gone you'll have a fuller appreciation for the Corkscrew Willow's incredible trademark branches.

Take pictures of your magnificent tree with a snow covered backdrop and make your own postcards to send out for the holidays.

You can even create wonderful wreaths from branch clippings!

One of the Fastest Growing Trees you can put in your Landscape

If your growth requirement is speed, this is the tree for you. In fact, the Corkscrew Willow grows so fast you should take that into consideration when determining the planting location.

The great news is it will top out at a nice height of about 30 feet. Full sun, partial shade-even poor soil quality won't faze the growth of the adaptable Corkscrew Willow.

Isn't it time you planted one?

Lovely so far
I adore corkscrew willows - they're so elegant! So far, just put it in the ground and immediately I saw leaves budding. We'll see how it survives its first Socal Summer, but I did try to give it a lot of shade...

Love it!
I needed a tree that would not grow too tall or large, had an interesting look, and could survive "wet feet" in clay soil (very poor drainage). The corkscrew willow is that tree. The tree I received from fast-growing trees was large, healthy, and expertly grown and pre-pruned. It arrived less than one week after I ordered it. I received e-mail status updates, which was a plus. How is my tree doing? It is thriving.

Our Fast Growing Tree Purchase History
I am delighted with all the purchases from Fast Growing Trees. I have posted photos of the house in 2011 - a short five years ago - and the outside garden plan. Those 2 photos were actually taken last years and there has been considerable progress since. The trees have always arrived promptly and in good condition. I have the holes ready for them and suggest purchasing the kit so the transition to their new home goes well.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Corkscrew Willow



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Corkscrew Willow.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Corkscrew Willow gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Corkscrew Willow again after the transplant is complete.

Diversity in my trees
Nancey M on Nov 1, 2016
I can't wait to get this tree. I have a dappled willow and it is growing so fast, it is just beautiful. I live in Wis. Can't wait to see this one.

Diversity in my trees
Nancey M on Nov 1, 2016
I planted a pair of these trees in a low region on my property at my previous home on Long Island, NY and loved the look of them. I know from my past history with this type of tree that it tolerates (thrives, actually) wet ground. We are now living in a suburb West of Chicago, IL where we have clay soil with poor drainage. I will be replacing a dwarf plum tree that I planted last year (Spring 2015) that "drowned" with this corkscrew willow.

Saw in front yard corner planting of a front porch. Magnificent .

when can I safely plant my corkscrew in il.?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2014
Will it grow in clay soil?
Cindy H on Oct 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Ours is 20 feet tall and grown in dark red clay soil. Sadly, as it has undergone some tough nj winters it is dying.
is this tree deer resistant?
Barbara S on Mar 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are deer resistant, please keep in mind that if a deer gets hungry enough it will eat anything.
when can we transplant this tree safely?
A shopper on Oct 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Early Spring before the buds break if possible but only once the frost is gone. This gives it all summer and fall to build strength for winter cold. Im in zone 5,,,
is a weeping willow a evergreen?
Kelly F on Apr 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is deciduous so it will shed its leaves over the winter.
Can you plant this near a pond? My pond has fish and turtles and I know they say some trees are toxic to water animals.
Lynn H on Jun 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Only at very high levels. It would take many years for any toxic levels to affect a pond and that would have the branches and leaves submerged in the water, for long periods of time.

What is the lifespan of this willow?
Layne S on May 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Approximately 15 years.....although it is rather short, it is very easy to propogate yourself and start new trees from so you can always have one or two in your yard. It grows fast and it a very beautiful tree.
Is this tree ok to plant on a parking strip?
Aubree M on Apr 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't - they get quite large with branches that grow to the ground like a weeping willow. I love mine, it grows fast and has beautiful branches.
Is this type of tree safe to be planted 35 feet from my drainage system?
Renegade on Mar 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Renegade thats a good question. I do not believe this tree is as invasive as the other willow's are. I say this because this tree like all trees will have a root system similar to the above ground growth. This is an ornamental and is more for accent not dominance nor shade. I have placed it in the front yard as an accent to stand behind a flower garden. I hope this helps... Arhino
Does this come in a dwarf variety that will top out at 15 feet or so?
Johnda S on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We do not carry this in a dwarf variety.
