When it comes to fun, unique, one-of-a-kind trees and shrubs, it's hard to beat the Chaparral Weeping Mulberry (Morus alba 'Chaparral'). It is a fruitless but phenomenal mulberry with pendulum branches that create a dramatic weeping form for remarkable ornamental value.
This stunning tree can be pruned for a more kempt appearance. Or you could let its long, draping branches reach all the way to the ground. Both options make for a visually unique landscaping small tree.
The Chaparral Weeping Mulberry makes a huge impact as an anchor plant at the corner of your foundation planting, at the center of a circular drive, or as a specimen tree.
It adds height and architectural interest no matter where it winds up in your yard, and it makes for an excellent spot for hiding during a game of hide-n-seek. Because of its long-weeping branches, this Mulberry makes for a dynamic retaining wall choice.
This umbrella-shaped tree has dense medium-green foliage. Each of the Chaparral Weeping Mulberry's leaves is glossy, large, and heart-shaped. From a distance, each leaf stands out on its own, creating a collage of differing greens.
And while the Chaparral Weeping Mulberry does lose its leaves in winter, its unique branch structure is a treat to examine sans-foliage.
The Chaparral Weeping Mulberry is easy to grow, and it puts up with less-than-perfect conditions like a champion. It is heat-tolerant and drought-tolerant once established, and it doesn't mind a bit of city air.
It will even put up well with salt, and as a male tree, there are no flowers to clean up. Just be sure you provide it with as much sunshine as you can.
Don't settle for boring, bland, or high-maintenance plants. The Chaparral Weeping Mulberry will provide your yard with instantaneous interest and add to your dynamic landscape. Get this weeping beauty now.
