Whether it is the glossy twisted leaves that draw you to this tree or its spectacular tangled and crooked branches, one thing is for sure: Dart’s Snake Willow will not leave you indifferent. 

Dart’s Snake Willow is an upright, deciduous tree with twisted dark green branches and a vigorous growth rate. The foliage complements the contorted form of this willow variety, as the shiny deep green leaves are also curled. In spring, this tree is adorned with yellow catkins.

How Hardy is Salix Alba Dart's Snake
This winter-interest tree is fully hardy in the United Kingdom. Dart’s Snake Willow will thrive in areas with average temperatures up to 10 degrees below zero during the colder months of the year.

How To Use Salix Alba Dart's Snake
The extraordinary twisted branches of the Dart’s Snake Willow create a breathtaking winter display. The contorted and crooked stems intertwined to create a fantastic intricate design that truly stands out in the bleak landscape. As a result, this deciduous tree is best planted on its own, e.g. on a lawn or near the patio. 

If you wish, you can also incorporate this willow into mixed shrub borders, where it can be a lovely backdrop for flowering shrubs and then take the spotlight when the temperatures drop.

How To Care for Salix Alba Dart's Snake
Dart’s Snake Willow is easy to grow and to care for. This cultivar prefers a spot in full sun and will thrive in deep, moderately fertile soil. Like most willows, this particular variety is also suitable for moist and boggy conditions. While it is indisputable that this contorted willow is quite stunning in its natural form, you can also prune it to shape it to your liking.
