A rare  and unusual tree for the medium-sized garden or for a container. A most distinguished tree, once thought to be extinct in the wild, but now known to grow in at least two small areas in Zhejiang province in Eastern China. Often referred to as a 'living fossil' in that it has remained fundamentally the same over 270 million years. It grows to be a medium-sized tree with interesting, bright green leaves which give a great golden display in autumn. Ginkgos prefer a relatively sheltered spot, out of strong winds, with well-drained, moist soil. They cope well with pollution and city conditions, and are planted as a street tree in many countries. 7.5 litre container/ 150-175 cms tall. Plants displayed on this website are not necessarily in stock in each of our shops.
