Availability: In stock
Ginkgo have lovely bright green leaves which turn beautiful shades of gold in late Autumn, they are famed as a herbal supplement by the ancient Chinese, this plant has been around since the dinosaurs.
Very tough and hardy, specimens in Japan actually survived the Hiroshima bomb of WWII and are growing today. These trees can live a long time, so you, your children, and generations to come can enjoy this incredibly beautiful tree for centuries.
The unusual foliage in spring is a light green, but will suddenly turn a pure, dazzling yellow in the Autumn, remaining for sometime on the tree, then suddenly dropping virtually all at the same time - a convenient time for Ginkgo leaf harvesting.
By pruning these can be kept as an attractive shrub or backdrop to a herbaceous border. They may even be used to create a very unusual bonsai. With its slow growing dense habit, this Ginkgo will make a wonderful striking specimen for any garden.
