Looking for a fast-growing, cold-hardy tree that's perfect for wildlife? Meet the Morus alba White Mulberry. This small to medium-sized tree boasts shiny dark green leaves and produces white, pinkish, or purple violet berries in June and July that birds love to feast on. . Leaves occur in three general shapes - entire, mitten (single lobed), and three-lobed. Originally imported as food for silkworms, this variety has a lifespan comparable to that of humans, although some specimens have been known to live for over 250 years. Its berries are edible, but poisonous when unripe. Widely cultivated and naturalized around the world, this tree has become popular for landscaping and as an ornamental plant. It's also known for the fastest plant movement in the world, launching its pollen at over half the speed of sound. With many medical uses, including its ability to treat diabetes and hypertension, this versatile tree is a great choice for any garden.
