Paper Mulberry

Broussonetia papyrifera
Moraceae (Mulberry family)
The Paper Mulberry, Broussonetia papyrifera, is a rounded tree with beautiful foliage and bearing very striking, unusual fruits. The leaves are covered in beautiful soft hairs, and are unusual in their variation; some leaves are entire, while others have lobes, and the lobing may be symmetrical or asymmetrical. Sheltering beneath the leaves for a few weeks in the autumn, are globose flowerheads studded with protruding orange-red fruits.
The common name refers to the thin bark which is used to make high-quality paper in eastern Asia and also a pliable, translucent leather-substitute used in the repair of vellum manuscripts.
