Morus alba 'Weeping'

Weeping mulberries make a unique and beautiful statement in any garden! These unusual trees naturally grow in a weeping form, while also having a contorted trunk and branches. The draping branches create an almost teepee-type hidden room under the limbs so you can hide inside and pick the 1"-long, dark and delicious berries.

Shipped plants may be pruned to fit in the box; please support any emerging branch to become the new central leader, and tie that branch in an upright position to your tree support post that should be as tall as you want the tree to be at maturity. Once the central leader reaches the desired height, you can allow the branch to begin to weep; any other branches emerging at that height will weep as well. Prune off any lower weeping branches as needed.

Ask a Question
  • Do I understand correctly that I could limit the height to, say, 8 feet?

    With annual pruning, yes.

  • I didn’t realize this was going to be such a small tree, the climbing roses from the same order are significantly bigger. - 1 gallon pot. What is the growth rate like?

    Mulberry growth is largely water dependent. With enough water and sunlight they can grow up to 2' per year. If they are not watered enough they will grow much less quickly so plan for good supplemental irrigation.

  • Is "Weeping" similar to "Pendula"?

    "Pendula" is a varietal term often used for "weeping" plants (from the Latin meaning drooping), but the botanical term is actually "decurrent". Hope that helps!

  • I would like a female tree. Will this be a female tree when ordering?

    Yes this is a grafted female tree.

  • How wide does this tree get in diameter? I have limited space for trees to spread out.

    6'-8' at maturity. It's much taller than it is wide (and it's not that tall).

  • What type of mulberry is your weeping mulberry most like? Pakistani?

    It's more like a common Morus rubra, like Wellington or Illinois Everbearing.

  • To what country is this native?

    The United States and Canada

Weeping mulberry

Came in excellent shape.

Very Satisfied

Weeping Mulberry tree arrived after a fairly lengthy shipping time. It was a bit longer than I expected and bare. I planted it in a pot because of weather and left it inside. Within just a few days buds appeared. All is good! I'll transplant it outside as soon as possible.

Looks very healthy

Tree was planted quickly, already leafed out nicely. Looks healthy and vigorous! Did not know weeping mulberry would have fruit though.
