Plant details

A nice variation on the species parent, 'Pendula' makes a much shorter, weeping form ideal for smaller gardens. Like the parent, it produces raspberry-like fruit, except these turn from white to pink and red in late summer, but if you want delicious fruit, M. nigra is first choice every time. Shelter from cold, drying winds is crucial. Prune trees in late autumn or early winter because the trees will bleed at other times of the year.
