Info

This unforgettable dwarf mulberry presents a tangled face with twisted branches and cut leaves that curl and float, adding to the complex, lacy texture -- easy to love. This is an old Japanese selection, a small shrub that reaches 1-3' tall in sun to part shade. Deciduous and appearing like twisted sticks in the winter once the ribbony leaves have provided their yellow fall display. Works well for bonsai, in containers, or as a striking specimen in the garden. Said to be deer resistant as well. Frost hardy to -20 °F, USDA zone 5. 'Itoguwa' translates as "Atomic Blast', as if the plant had been through a disaster and survived.

You would be forgiven if you mistakenly took this plant to be an alien life form. I'm happy to tell you it isn't. It does fit its name however, with leaves of shredded ribbons, its dwarf size of 1-3', and its twisted form! Just the right size for a conversation piece and thank God it's non-fruiting.

Very dwarf, with foliage so lacy as to appear ethereal, this charming little 1-3' Mulberry will win your heart at first glance (it did ours!); leaf segments are so finely cut that they curl & dance in a breeze. S-PSh/M
