Enchanting Paper Mulberry (Broussonetia papyrifera)

Post by RyanLeClair » Sun Oct 07, 2012 2:06 pm

This amazing tree was at Monticello. The various mulberries are considered tasteless in our time, but apparently our forefather Jefferson was convinced of the opposite, for large swaths of his Virginia residence are/were decorated with these trees. This particular paper mulberry is to be found near the large kitchen.

Amazing Place! Did you take any other pictures? The old cedar T.J. planted?

Hey Adam, are you talking about the Chinese Toon? If so, then yes, I did see it!

Very nice! It's certainly bigger than any mulberry I have ever seen.
