Contorted Mulberry (Morus bombycis 'Unryu')
This is a rare and uniquely contorted variety of Mulberry. The branching is gnarled and twisted creating a beautifully contorted mass of branches that can reach 6 to 8' tall and almost as wide. The plant provides a multiple season interest...lovely green leaves during the spring with soft, white and lightly scented flowers. The leafs remain green and provide shady during even the most intense heat and the tree is drought-tolerant once established. During early fall, this tree produces small, sweet-tasting black mulberries. Because all of our trees and plants are raised in a non-chemical environment, the fruit is highly edible. After the fruit has been harvested, the Contorted Mulberry puts on a brilliant fall display of yellow, orange and soft red coloration. Once the leaves have fallen, the contorted branching provides excellent winter interest. Truly a plant for all seasons!
Contorted mulberry is self-fertile, exhibits no pest or disease issues, and bears fruit after 3 years. The plant is viable in USDA Zones 4 through 9 and can sustain freezing temperatures to minus 25 degrees below zero.
