I purchased a Fruitless Weeping Mulberry tree. I planted it last sping. I was told that it would flower just as a regular Weeping Mulberry. It did not last year and does not appear that it will be this year either(although we are having a slow spring). I ask another Garden Center about it and they say that the fruitless will not flower. which one is correct? will the tree ever flower?

The fruitless mulberries do flower in the spring but the flowers are like green catkins, very small and not very noticeable. The flowers are similar between the different mulberries -- Morus alba, M. nigra, and M. rubrum. So even in full bloom you would not see a display the way you would on, for example, a flowering crab apple tree.
