The Q&A Archives: Willow Tree??

Question: We saw some kind of a willow tree at the San Francisco Garden show recently. It was a gnarly branched, smallish tree and as I mentioned some kind of a willow tree, however I can't find it within your plant list. Can you help me please?

Thank you in advance for the help..

Answer: Salix 'Golden Curls' is the tree you're describing. The branches weep and twist and the branch tips curl upward. Even the leaves are somewhat curly. A local nursery can order one if they don't have one in stock. Here's a list of nurseries in your neighborhood:
