|Robinia 'Twisty Baby'|
'Twisty Baby' is a cultivated variety of Black Locust, a native deciduous North American tree and is an excellent specimen or focal point for the garden. Twisted branching and tightly growing leaf clusters that hang offer unique interest to the garden. Foliage turns yellow in fall. Some spines may be present on the branches. Although it is not a reliable bloomer, when it does, it produces pendulous, fragrant white, pea-like flowers. It is drought and pest resistant. Best grown in sun to part shdae in rich, well drained soils. Can grow 8-10ft in height with a slightly larger spread. Hardy to zone 4

Salix matsudana 'Scarlet Curls'
A fast growing deciduous tree with red to orange winter bark and shoots. Branching is contorted and twisted but maintains a loose, spreading growth habit. Leaves are lance-shaped and bright green. Offers great winter colour and interest. As with all willows, plant them away from underground pipes as their roots are prone to wandering as they seek out water sources. Grows best in sun to part shade. Height 20-30ft. Spread 12-15ft. Hardy in zones 6-9
Salix matsudana 'Tortuosa'
A fast growing deciduous tree (usually multi-stemmed) with an oval rounded crown and corkscrew-like branching. Often used as a specimen in the landscape. Neon green long, twisty foliage appears in spring while loosely contorted branching add year round interest. A native to China and Korea first brought to North America in the 1920's. Will reach a height of 20-30ft at maturity. Best grown in sun and moist soils. Hardy to zone 4.
