Curly Willow

Salix Matsudana
Curly Willow, Corkscrew Willow, Snake Willow, Contorted Willow!… Many names. Incredibly unique plant. This willow grows with extreme vigor. We’ve seen it be able to be 6”+ in diameter and 15’ or taller within just 3 years from rooting as a cutting. We plant this variety extensively in our living walls, privacy fences, and as bio-filtering and biomass producing areas.

This willow would be worth growing if only for the ornamental value but you could consider planting it for very rapid carbon sequestration, fodder and feed for livestock, insanely fast growing biomass for chop and drop mulch applications, filtering of water ways, silt catch and erosion control, unique wood craft material (crazy spoons and beautiful handles) and potentially as rocket mass heater fuel if dried well.

Your purchase will provide you with 10 freshly harvested and super ready to root dormant hardwood cuttings. They will be between 6” and 12” depending on stock availability, and we often throw in a few extra to be sure you are happy and successful!

Easy to root in a nursery bed for a year to then be transplanted out to a final planting spot, or ‘stuck’ right in position where you want it to grow (provided you offer a little TLC of mulch, some watering, weeding and protection in year one)
