Morus Alba Pendula

 

Dwarf, weeping cultivar that typically grows to only 6-10’ tall. It is typically top-grafted to a species tree, with its somewhat gnarled branches weeping to the ground. Inconspicuous greenish-white flowers bloom in spring. Fertilized flowers are followed by berry-like fruits that are edible but very messy in landscapes. Glossy, usually lobed, rounded, dark green leaves (to 8” long). Fall color is an undistinguished yellow.

 

 

Best grown in rich, moist, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade.
