Morus alba 'Pendula', or Weeping White Mulberry is a small, female, deciduous tree of broad weeping, half-open crown, with pendulous, curtain-like branches touching the ground, heart-shaped, glossy, light green leaves, yellow in autumn, and inconspicuous, dropping catkins of small, yellowish flowers in spring. Flowers are followed by oval, edible, raspberry-like, deep pink fruits, attractive to birds, in autumn. Weeping White Mulberry prefers fertile, hummus-rich, moist, well-drained soils, in full sun, but can grow in a wide range of soils. It is tolerant of drought and heat. Resistant to frost, but should be sheltered from harsh, drying winds. It is generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require regular pruning. Morus alba 'Pendula' is a nice-looking, small tree of elegant weeping habit, great as a specimen plant or informal hedge or screen. It is not recommended to be planted near pavements and around homes because the fruits can make them stained and messy.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
