Compact, Dense Growth and Fan-Shaped Foliage
Why Ginkgo Biloba 'Mariken' Trees?
It's an ornamental masterpiece prized for its compact stature and dense leaves: The ball-shaped Ginkgo Biloba 'Mariken' flattens as it grows, naturally spreading twice as wide as it is tall without any ties, wires or pruning. And the miniature tree retains the many charms of the towering Ginkgo Biloba, including a longer life and foliage that turns gold in autumn.
It's a sturdy, carefree tree. The compact and hardy dwarf tree enjoys full sun and grows with minimal attention. Naturally resistant to diseases and pests, the Ginkgo Biloba 'Mariken' is also tolerant of air pollution, clay-heavy soil, and nibbling deer.
And because this Mariken Tree is a male variety, you won't have to deal with the foul-smelling fruit that precludes most homeowners from owning similar varieties.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Experience was great. Tree is doing very well in a sunny location in San Antonio, TX. It seems to be growing leaves already! Excited about it.
Trees got here a day early in overall good condition. They are beautiful specimens, I planted them right away now I will keep my fingers crossed
Aside from the constant spam e-mail I have had very good luck getting healthy, unusual trees from Fast Growing Trees.com. These two are no exception. Both are alive and growing; about to leaf out. Only time will tell if they will survive the rugged desert climate of St George. I've never seen a grown Mariken; only seen photos. They should make a stately curb presentation to of my new home. The only reason I gave you only 4 stars is that you actually shipped one tree upside down. it didn't travel well. several branches were broken and the soil wasn't completely kept in the container - even though it was captured in the bag. That tree struggles much more than the other tree. Were it not for some unusually cool wet weather it probably wouldn't have survived. I held off writing my review to see if it would survive; looks like it will.
First one arrived dead due to a freak negative cold front in October! Customer service sent another one out after I sent a picture. They made it painless despite the snafu. Highly recommend fastgrowingtrees.com!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Consider its mature size while planting (don't plant too closely to structures), and find a well-drained, full sun area (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Ginkgo should be planted in the fall or spring. The hole should be twice as wide and slightly deeper than the root ball. Press the soil around the roots as you fill, and water thoroughly when finished. Try to protect young transplants from excessively dry soil conditions.
2. Watering: Water regularly for the first 3 years of growth, but be sure not to waterlog. Generally, watering once or twice weekly is ideal, or checking the surrounding soil for dryness. Mulching is ideal so as to retain moisture in the summer.
3. Fertilizing: Annual applications of compost is recommended. Use a slow-release fertilizer like 10-10-10 in the spring according to label instructions to give your tree a boost.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
