Would you separate these trees?
A few years back family members gave us several Hibiscus trees which we planted in a row. One had several branches right off the base but we thought nothing of it. Part of the tree lost leaves but it came back and this year I noticed it's got fruit! It's a Mulberry tree! How can that be?
Well when I got down and examined the base you can see it's actually two different trees! And now you can tell they are different trees. So it's a pink Hibiscus and a Mulberry tree growing in the same spot. We don't know whether to try to separate them or leave them.
Will one kill off the other? Can they be separated at this stage without killing either one? Thanks.
