Known as a ‘living fossil’, it is the sole survivor of an ancient group of trees that outlived the dinosaurs. A deciduous conifer, the Ginkgo will leaf up in the spring with beautiful bright green leaves that flutter in a breeze and in the autumn mellow to a butter yellow colour then fall to the ground. The leaves are fan-shaped and have two or more distinct lobes. It has an irregular, spreading crown and deeply cracked, brown bark. A large tree but very slow growing…It is a gorgeous specimen!
Prefers full sun and a free draining soil.
