Mulberries can grow 4’-6’ per year producing a tree canopy that is more wide than tall.
Where water is not limiting, mulberries make great shade trees producing a deep, dark, shade canopy.
Leaves are large and sometimes variable in shape.
A few strategically planted mulberries can shade an entire yard.
The female mulberry tree produces abundant sweet fruit
that resemble blackberries.
Female trees are very messy because of fruit drop
so plant them away from sidewalks, driveways, and the house.
Mulberry trees have aggressive surface root systems so plant them at least 25’ from any structures such as walls, sidewalks, or the house. Mulberry trees are hardy to USDA zone 2 and are best grown with regular water.
