A Remarkable red mulberry

Tree Information
Common Name: red mulberry
Scientific name: Morus rubra
Category: Other
Notes: This is an old tree, but its real significance is that hundreds of children climb on it each year at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond. It now sits in the middle of the Children's Garden, which is visited by school groups and others from all over the state. It's like a magnet--often with a dozen or more children climbing on it all at one time! Kids say it's the best part of the Children's Garden.
Best time to photograph: when kids are on it! contact Beth Monroe, Director of Publicity at the Garden to organize. 804-262-9887
