Giant leaf


#1

Found this growing through a briar patch I am about to remove. The large leaf caught my eye.
Is this a Florida Giant Mulberry? That is a full size Laptop it is sitting on.


#2

Looks like a mulberry to me, probably a Morus alba or hybrid. Cannot tell the variety without the fruit.


#3

Thanks for the feedback. Are there other varieties with leaves this large?


#4

Looks more like M.rubra to me

Went to growingmulberry.org and using the descriptions there is appears to be a Morus rubra. Rough surface on top of leaf, no visible hairs and a dull finish. Apparently 10 inch wide leaves are common. I found a much larger tree nearby and will pollard it this fall and graft many kinds onto it in the spring.
