Question Curly Willow- where can i get one?

I have visited so many nurseries & they say they can't get them. I don't want to get a twig from a flower arrangement & try to root that....
Does anyone know whr I could find a sapling already rooted & ready?

Shouldn't be that hard to find

I'm presuming you are refering to the "corkscrew" willow. Is it possible that the nursery people you have contacted didn't know exactly what you were looking for? It's not a very popular variety but shouldn't be that difficult to locate. I'm sure that some of the knowledgeable folks on the site will be able to point you to a location where they can be found if all else fails.

Curly willow/corkscrew?

The nurseries showed me the pics & I took a sample stick with me... So I am hoping to find where the saplings are hiding.
Thanks

Hi Meowii,

Do a google with the term:
curly willow
or
Salix matsudana 'Tortuosa'
and you should find several retailers for mailorder. You can check references here or even search by state or type of plant material.
