Morus Pendula mulberry trees

Morus alba
  • Picking season: Mid
  • Self-fertility: Self-fertile

This is a semi-ornamental weeping mulberry tree. It has been grafted on a 1.2m clear stem to emphasise the weeping habit.

Although it is a "white" mulberry (Morus alba) rather than the more usual fruiting species (Morus nigra) it should still produce a crop of small red fruits.
