Plant details

Commercially valued as the sole food source of the silkworm, the white mulberry makes an attractive garden tree, with its large lobed leaves. It is also a butterfly magnet, so very good for a wildlife garden. Its fruits however, while edible, are generally thought to be inferior to those of the black mulberry, Morus nigra. Keep protected from cold, drying winds.
