Morus rubra, Red Mulberry, is a North American native tree ranging from the mid-Atlantic to Florida and west to Nebraska and Texas, though today it is an uncommon sight in the landscape. In garden design, the Red Mulberry is used for both its ornamental value and its delicious fruit that tastes like sweet blackberries. The berries can be eaten fresh off the tree or used to make pies, jellies or jams, and in breads, muffins, and cakes. Red Mulberry is also the larval host of Mourning Cloak butterflies and the birds relish the berries. All grown up, this species can reach 50 feet in height but is more often seen at 35 feet or lower with an equal spread. Get all the details below!
