Ginkgo Tree Ginkgo Biloba
The Most Colorful Shade Tree
• Insanely bright yellow leaves!
• Dense, unique fan-shaped leaves
• Very tolerant of pollution and poor soil
Sturdy & Versatile
The ideal shade tree for modern city living. Very tolerant of poor growing conditions- including poor soil, air pollution, and infrequent watering. It can even survive a wide temperature range. Deer generally avoid the Ginkgo and it has few insect enemies. If given just a bit of care, the Ginkgo is a wonderful shade tree that can survive decade after decade, generation after generation.
While the Ginkgo can stand many climates, it does not like to grow in climates above zone 8. The tree is a sun-lover and needs at least 4 or 5 hours of full sun every day. In landscaping conditions, you can expect it to mature up to 25-50 feet tall. When the tree grows, it takes on a pyramidal shape.
As with planting any tree, the hole should be at least twice the size of the root ball, and should be well amended with organics to allow for drainage at root growth.
A Living Fossil
Discovered by monks in the forests of ancient China in the 1690s, the Ginkgo Tree, also sometimes known as the Maidenhair, is the last surviving member of its family. Once discovered, it quickly found its way to Japan. It is so revered in Japan that the leaf of the Ginkgo is the symbol for the City of Tokyo and for the Japanese tea ceremony. It has been planted in America since the 1700s and in addition to its beautiful foliage, the fruit of the female tree has been used for food and natural medicines.

Because this tree is grown in a burlap bag, its roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around the pot. This brings moisture and nutrients into the tree, for faster, healthier growth and ease. Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included), then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!
