The corkscrew willow trees are fast growing and, like the weeping willow, they love sun and lots of water. Planting a corkscrew willow near a pond or lake adds a beautiful accent to the body of water. Corkscrew willows are prized for their twisting and contorted branches that make the tree attractive in the winter. These water-loving willows tolerate any soil, especially wet with poor drainage. If you love the look of a weeping willow but do not have the space one the corkscrew will offer a beautiful alternative.
