The Mulberry Tree is called silk worms plant too. The leaves is the food of silk worms. I am told that the leaves, fruit and bark of the Mulberry Tree all have been used for medicinal purposes.
Mulberry trees are quite adaptable to many gardening zones and conditions. They can grow in partial shade or in full sun with moist well-drained soil, I have one plant growing in pot which is placed at the corridor, it grows well with many fruits, although the fruits are smaller and lesser than those growing in full sun. But it is a handsome bonsai as a potted fruit tree. I have been thinking about experimenting with growing a Mulberry tree in a bonsai style...
