  • Posted by ILPARW (southeast Pennsylvania - Zone 6b) on Nov 8, 2019 11:08 AM concerning plant:
    Every once in awhile, I have seen this Weeping White Mulberry in the yard of an estate, an older large house in a well-to-do neighbourhood, or even in a park in the Midwest or East USA. It is supposed to be a fruiting clone. It can get 15 to 20 feet high and wide eventually in old age.
