This plant has huge roots and is springing up all over my yard. If you are able to dig it, you find a gigantic bulb deep within the ground.

    Link below for your question about mulberry spreading from roots. On the side note, we had taken down a few Chinese tallow trees more than 3 years ago. Their stumps looked dead with no sign of life. But this past year and this year there were and are roots stems popping up vigorously, all are tracing back to the “dead stumps” :(.

    Hi Susanne Grace, I can only “guess” from the provided photo. You would be the best judge, since you have the plant in person. According to sources, a nursery grown mulberry could bear fruits in 2-3 years. I don’t know the fruits bearing maturity rate of the volunteer ones. Link below with a mulberry branch has different leaf shapes. Best wishes!

    It could be a mulberry. Thank you for your help. I’m still not sure. There are different shaped leaves on the same stem and I’ve never seen any fruit. Do mulberry trees spread through their root system? This comes up everywhere, mainly in full sun.

    These leaves are too far away to tell for certain. I’m guessing maybe it might a type of mulberry (Morus). Link below with leaves images to help with identification. check it out and see if you have a match. Best wishes!
