Morus nigra is a slow-growing, medium-sized, dense, broad-crowned, deciduous tree with heart-shaped, ovate, dark green leaves, yellow in autumn. Small, inconspicuous, greenish flowers grow in catkins and bloom in summer and are followed by edible, large, juicy, dark purplish-red fruits, in late summer and early autumn. Fruits are superior in taste to white mulberry and can be used for making jams and jellies. Black Mulberry thrives in fertile, hummus-rich, moist, well-drained soils, in full sun. It is resistant to heat, cold and urban pollution. It needs to be sheltered from harsh winds. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Generally, pest-free. Morus nigra is an ornamental tree, great as a specimen plant or a shade tree for informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Excellent when planted in groups, for informal hedges and screens, as a windbreak, or erosion control. Since tolerant of urban pollution, perfect for streets, roadsides, and parks. Suitable for growing in pots and containers.

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).
