Product details

Salix matsudana Tortuosa known as Wiggerly Willow or Dragon’s Claw Willow, has numerous names and is sometimes referred to as the Peking Willow.

Introduced from China in the 1900s its contorted corkscrew twiggy growth is often dried and sold as decorations within the home.

Green leaves emerge in springs that turn yellow in the autumn ahead of leaf fall.

Salix matsudana Tortuosa thrives on most soils but is best on moist ground and makes a fine tree for a large garden.

Its twisting branch network can be really appreciated when it is dormant without leaf in the winter making this a tree with genuine year round interest.

Mature Height: 7-12m
