white mulberry

silkworm mulberry

Latin name:
Medium-sized, bushy, broad, deciduous tree (H 8-14 m, W 5-7 m). Leaves large (8-20 cm), broadly ovate to heart-shaped, eventually palmately lobed (3-5 leaflets), rough, light green. Male and female flowers separate, light green, tiny. Plants can be either monoecious (male and female flowers on the same plant) or dioecious (male and female flowers on separate plants). It is usually better to plant male trees only, to avoid problems with fruits. Fruits fleshy, elongate cylindric to egg-shaped (2-3 cm), resembling raspberries, white, light pink, pink-red to dark violet-red, sweet and tasty, good for fresh use, cooking and making jams. Attracts birds and insects. Requires sunny, warm, sheltered positions and sufficiently drained, poor, calcareous soils. disclaimer užitnost
  • Plants for destinctively sunny sites need and tolerate a lot of direct sun radiation (eg. roses, even more spurge (euphorbia myrsinites) , sea buckthorn, sedum, most of rock-garden plants, cactuses etc). Mostly, but not necessarily, these plants can also tolerate drought. Roses need more water and noursihments and rich, deep, fetile soil, while white stonecrop survives more weeks in dry soil without rain or watering and can grow normally in poor, sandy soil as well.

  • Decidious have woody stems (i. e. tree trunk and branches) and are also called woody plants or trees. Leaves are normally broad, soft and thin.

  • The plant develops new leaves or needles every spring, which dropp off in autumn. Herbaceous plants can die completely in above ground section and grow back in the spring.

  • Plant can in otherwise appropriate environment survive cold down to - 23 °C.

  • Porous or dry soils are normally light and loose, there is no stagnant water but relatively quickly flows in deeper layers; such ground are more airy and warmer, yet drier and usually contain less humus and for such undergrowth it is often to for drought to appear (e. g. rockgardens, walls, by paths and roads, on gravel, also on gravel surface in towns and close to buildings ...), plants of such undergrowth need well-drained soil, they tolerate drought but cannot tolerate constant moisture or even flooding.

  • Ripen, normally developed and healthy (without signs of diseas or pests) fruits may be consumed raw, unprocessed. Before consumation many fruits must be: cleaned, penducles and peel/shell or/and some inedible parts need to be removed. Ripeness goes out in several phases. Some fruits are only technologicaly ripen when picked, these have to be left hanged or softened (e. g. persimmon) for some time to gain the phase of edible ripeness. Durability and storage capacity of fruits can vary greatly, they depend on plant species and variety and external factors. Regarding edibility and/or healing power we are not liable, in this matter seek for professional guidance before consumation or usage.

  • Woody plant, normally with a remarkable tree trunk and a tree top. May have several stems - multistemmed tree. The tree top may be of different shapes, dense or thin, symetric or uneven. Most trees reach a height of more than 3 metres.

Murve so v osnovi zelo velika drevesa, zato na vrtove sadimo njihove manjše, povešave sorte. Veliki, običajno dlanasti, živo zeleni listi dajejo prijetno senco, sorte s povešavimi vejami pa so zaradi posebne oblike okrasne tudi pozimi. Cvetovi... next...
