Commercially valued as the sole food source of the silkworm, the white mulberry, Morus alba, makes an attractive garden tree. It bears large lobed leaves, inconspicuous flowers and juicy dark fruits. While the fruits are edible they're said to be inferior to those of the black mulberry, Morus nigra.
Grow Morus alba in moist but well-drained soil in full sun, ideally with the added protection of a south- or west-facing wall. Keep protected from cold, drying winds.
