This small tree is commonly called a corkscrew willow because of its twisted, upwardly spiralling branches and leaves. The spiraled growth of the twigs become twisted branches, giving small tree a rather oriental look. It can tolerate clay soil and requires only moderate watering once established. Consider planting it near a canale.
Its small branches are perfect to use in flower arrangements.
