A fruitless clone of the popular weeping mulberry, featuring a bushy, twisted and arching habit of growth, making it ideal for accent use; a little large for the average garden, so best used as a feature or specimen in the landscape.
Chaparral Weeping Mulberry has emerald green foliage throughout the season. The pointy leaves turn yellow in fall. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.
Chaparral Weeping Mulberry is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a rounded form and gracefully weeping branches. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.
This shrub will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting birds to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.
