Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these trees 30' apart to ensure room for growth.

Had to have a complement for the Shangri La Mulberry I bought at the same time.

To distract birds from my cherries and a man once gave me a taste of his mulberry wine + I liked it.

My wife loves these berries. When we find a tree she always eats them but we never knew their name, finally we can have a tree of our own!

Morus alba is white mulberry, which is considered to be a invasive, undesirable species. Does this variety have traits that counter this description?
Ellen K on Aug 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If this is a concern, Illinois Everbearing would be a better choice for you. Here is a link to the product page: //www.starkbros.com/products/fruit-trees/mulberry-trees/illinois-everbearing-mulberry
This tree can reach 30' but can be grown in a container?
Terry P on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We wouldn't advise it; container-growing is better suited to dwarf trees. However if you try it, use an extra-large container to accommodate the root growth. You'll need to prune it to keep it in bounds.
Can anybody tell me when I will receive my order? Order#1947862

The description says it grows well in containers. What size pot would be appropriate? And will it grow more like a bush instead of tree?

Fast growing plant
As promised this plant grew very fast and is showing blooms second year. It is already at 10 feet tall and 5 feet wide.

Very healthy, vigorous plant. Grew two feet the first summer and even set fruit. I want more but as yet don't know where to put them. Hope the mulberry will distract birds from my cherries.

sweet lavender mulberry died
The sweet lavender mulberry I purchased died midsummer - not sure what happened, as the Asian pears and Illinios mulberry all looked great. I pulled the dead mulberry plant out in early september, and repotted it, hoping there might be some life left in the root (I have a grape vine that "died", but I left in a pot on the porch, then saw it sprout the following spring, so I am cautiously optimistic the mulberry might come back to life).

It's trying
Location and clay soil would be my guess for why it isn't doing as well as the other mulberry trees. I should wait three years before I review it. It might surprise me.

Mulberry Tree
I planted our Mulberry Tree in our yard in Southern Alabama just minutes from Wolf Bay and the Gulf. It has been growing more each year and currently covered with berries, it is about 6 foot 6 inches tall, we are very pleased with the tree and look forward to eating the fruit. Thanks again

Nice tree
A little expensive, but Starks has good customer service and a hassle free replacement guarantee. I have 3 left of 5 that I purchased. Take Starks zone compatibility with a grain of salt and consider if you may have microclimate issues. I'm in 5b according to the calculator, but there is still frosts throughout May and as early as mid August. The early and late frosts have been pretty hard on these mulberries but they are 2years in the ground here and 5-6 feet tall now, bearing pretty well.

Yummy berries
The tree had some berries the first year, but the year after the berries didn't ripen all the way and fell off. The tree is great, so I blame the weather this year.

Mine died
Lasted a month or two then died. Maybe not the best.

Great in large pot
I bought my lavender mulberry over 5 years ago and have it in a 1/2 wine barrel pot and it is doing wonderfully producing sweet delicious fruit every year! I am in midwest United states.

Already Growing
I just planted the little twig that came a few months ago and it already has lovely little leaves on it. It also shows, what looks like, little berries style growths? Already? I don't know but I love the beauty of this tree when it's gown and I'll get luscious fruit plus nice shade in the yard. Let's see what it does in the summer heat.
