The Q&A Archives: Chaparral Weeping Mulberry

Question: I have a Chaparral Weeping Mulberry tree that was existing when we moved in the home. I was just wondering what size this tree will eventually get, will it need to be pruned, and or does it flower at all?

Answer: Your tree, Morus alba 'Chaparral pendula', has been grafted onto a standard rootstock and can be expected to grow 15'-20' high with an equal spread. The tree will not flower, nor will it bear fruit, but will provide thick, dense shade during the summer months. Mulberry trees grow fast and can be pruned back hard each year to help keep them in shape. Enjoy your tree for its ease of maintenance, attractive growth habit and the summertime shade it will provide!
