Présentation détaillée

The Broussonetia Papyrifera also called Paper Mulberry is a small deciduous ornamental tree of Asian origin (more particularly from China and Japan). It has long been cultivated in these regions for its slightly ridged gray bark with which an excellent quality paper was made. You will appreciate it for its large leaves (10 to 20 cm long), its decorative catkins and its edible berries.

Reaching 8 to 12 m in height for a spread of 4 to 6 m, the Paper Mulberry surprises with its very particular decorative foliage. Indeed, on the same branch, the leaves can have different shapes. They can be very cut, lobed or simply oval. The older the tree, the more heart-shaped they become. Gray-green in color, they have a rough surface while their reverse is downy.

Broussonetia Papyrifera flowers in April-May. It is necessary to have a female plant and a male plant for the flowers to be fertilized. The male tree produces long, light green twisted chestnuts while the female tree bears shorter inflorescences. These give way to red-orange fruits, globular and spiky, very appreciated by birds. They have a sweet flavor and are used to make jams.

The Paper mulberry settles in the sun or in partial shade, in any type of soil, even limestone, humus and well drained. It adapts to summer drought and tolerates cold down to -15 ° C. This small tree with a spreading habit can do wonders in isolation or in alignment tree.
