Carol Cloud Bailey

The strong trunk and branches bear a pleasing grayish-white smooth bark from which it received its common name. Leaves are very large, oval to heart shaped and bright glossy green. Foliage turns butter yellow in the fall.

(Weeping White Mulberry, White Mulberry)

This beautiful weeping mulberry is a unique small tree for specialized landscapes. It is composed of a white mulberry top-grafted with a dwarf weeping variety to create a more creative specimen. The white mulberry originates in China where its leaves are a famous food for silk worms. In America their tolerance of extreme heat and cold led growers to find a fruitless clone that could make a resilient landscape tree, particularly in the arid West. This tree is a dwarf, fruiting variety, most often...

(Black Mulberry)

Black mulberry is a fast-growing, rounded deciduous tree with inconspicuous flowers and edible fruits. The flowers are pale green and tiny and appear in clusters that produce bead-like fruits attached to a fleshy core in an oblong cluster. The clusters go from red to black as they mature, and resemble blackberries, but are only mildly sweet and flavorful. Planted mainly for shade and its tolerance of hot, dry conditions, black mulberry is also valued by some gardeners as a pie fruit and as food for...

(Australian Fire Tree, Australian Flame Tree, West Australian Christmas Tree)

Eluding cultivation because of its need for a host to grown on, the West Australian Christmas tree dazzles in its native habitat with an intense, golden orange flower display. In its natural range across extreme southwestern Western Australia, the blooming season coincides with the approach of Christmas, in late spring and very early summer. A distant relative to mistletoe, this evergreen tree attaches some of its roots onto the roots of any array of other plant species nearby for moisture and nutrient...

(Swamp Tupelo, Water Tupelo)

Large oval leaves, purplish fruits that are food for wood ducks and a flaring, buttressed trunk are interesting features of the swamp tupelo. A pyramid-shaped tree when young, this tall but narrow deciduous tree becomes rather irregular in habit with great age. It's native to the wet lowland soils across the southeastern United States, especially in the coastal plain and lower Mississippi River valley. The sandy gray bark is ridged and corky.

The large leaves are tapering ovals and are a satin-glossy...

(Black Tupelo, Blackgum, Sour Gum)

Sour gum or black tupelo is an irregular growing deciduous tree native to eastern North America. The green oval leaves are usually wider at the tip than at the base and turn bright red in the fall, often with leaves sporadically changing yellow or orange in late summer. Sour gum is unique in that although different sexed flowers appear on separate trees, male trees may also set some fruits which resemble small bluish-black olives. Birds relish these fruits but they can be quite messy on decks and...

(Common Olive, Cultivated Olive, European Olive)

The olive tree is a native of the chaparral regions of the Mediterranean where the oil from its fruits have fueled the diets of many great, early civilizations. Unlike most other fruit trees, olives are very long-lived and produce better with age, so ancient groves across countries such as Greece, Italy, Israel and Turkey. Trees as old as 1800 years still produce bumper crops of olives. Contemporary groves also exist worldwide, where the climate permits. In the North America, California is the center...

(Ascolano Olive, Common Olive)

Known for its large, high quality olives for eating, 'Ascolano' is one of the most popular olive cultivars for home growing. The mild fruits are prolific and can also be squeezed to make rich, tasty oil. Italian in origin, it develops into an attractive, single-trunked tree with slightly drooping branches and is noted for its good cold hardiness. For best fruiting, ensure other olive trees are available for cross-pollination.
