Weeping mulberry


I have a weeping mulberry bush that looks more like it's angry. The branches are supposed to hang down and they stick straight up. Any ideas to get it growing right?

Some of the branches do "weep" but many go up. I bought mine when my dad bought one and we got them out of the same bunch. It was "weeping" when I got it, and probably about 6 foot tall.

We had the same thing with a weeping cherry. Some of it went down, some wnet up. We looked closely at it after several years and realized it had a graft. So, we cut off the happy part and left the weeping part and while the tree is weeping, we are happy!

Yep--it's a graft---trim off any upright branches and you are good.

If you can figure out where the graft is, the best place will be to cut at the trunk just at or above the graft
