Answer:corkscrew willow will become a large tree, if allowed to grow outdoors. The bare branches give interest to the winter landscape because of their contorted shape. You can root a small (2-inch) piece of the branch and it will turn into a tree within a season. Just lay the piece lengthwise on some potting soil in a pot and cover it lightly. Keep the soil moist and it will root. The piece you've rooted in water can be placed in a pot with some moist soil and it will develop more roots. Take it outdoors once you've potted it up and use it on a deck or patio until it outgrows its pot - then plant it in the soil. Willows like wet soil and have invasive root systems so plant your new tree away from septic and drainfields. I have a corkscrew willow in a large container outdoors. I just keep it small by pruning it each year and keeping it slightly pot-bound. It's an interesting tree.
