Maclura tricuspidata - BSWJ12755

Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Price: £60.00
For us only forming a medium sized shrub to around 2m tall, an unusual member of the mulberry family, which we collected seed of on our visit in 2010. Where several shrubs had formed a small thicket, inpenotrateable because of their large spines held in the leaf axils, the leaves are ovate mostly tri-lobed on our plant, shallowly so on some, to 14 x 6cm. While the flowers are small and easily missed, the fruit resulting from the female inflorescences are orange red when mature in globose heads. The bark fibres are used for making paper, the leaves are used as food for silkworms, the fruit are edible, and the bark is used medicinally. Best grown in good light in a drained fertile soil.
