Red mulberry is found throughout most of North America east of the Rockies, primarily in floodplains and other moist sites; in New England, it is native to western regions (one population in Rhode Island is probably an escape). Red mulberry is a welcome addition to the garden for its juicy, lightly sweet red fruits produced in August, which delight birds and make an excellent pie. Its light, soft, durable wood has been used to manufacture fence posts and furniture.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
