Someone recently sent me pictures of a true Black Mulberry (Morus nigra) that was growing in Norfolk Virginia. I know you West Coast people aren’t impressed, but a large, healthy Black Mulberry growing in the eastern half of the US is a rare occurrence. I surmise that there are plenty more in the more northern reaches of USDA zones 7 and 8. Fitting climates should be had in coastal Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Long Island (Can anyone in the forum vouch for that statement?). I would love to see pictures of eastern US Black Mulberry sightings.
