Small male and female flowers are borne on separate trees as the new leaves unfold, the males in long catkins, the females in globular heads.
Broussonetia species are wind-pollinated and the anthers of male flowers expel their pollen explosively, visible as tiny spurts of white dust emitted randomly along the catkins.
