Gingko Biloba - Seedling #5 pot
The ginkgo tree is thought to be one of the oldest living trees, dating back to more than 150 million years. Ginkgo is a deciduous, hardy shade tree with unique fan-shaped leaves. It is native to China, Japan, and Korea, but is also now grown in Europe and the United States. Ginkgo biloba, or maidenhair, is practically pest-free, resistant to gypsy moth, long living, and drought tolerant. Young trees are often very open but they fill in to form a denser canopy. It makes a durable street tree as it is tolerant to air pollution and road salt. It also makes for an excellent specimen tree, including bonsai. The shape is often irregular with a large branch or two seemingly forming its own tree on the trunk. Ginkgo tolerates most soil, including compacted, and alkaline, and grows slowly to 75 feet tall or more. The tree is easily transplanted and has a vivid yellow fall color which is second to none in brilliance, even in the south. However, leaves fall quickly and the fall color show is short. Cold hardy in USDA Zones 4-9.
USDA ZONES: Zone 4, Zone 5, Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9
