Unique Leaves for Bright Yellow Fall Foliage

Why Ginkgo Trees?

Colorful, unique foliage, as well as pest and drought resistance, set the Ginkgo Tree apart. An unusual ornamental tree famous for its interesting shape and vibrant foliage, the Ginkgo stands out with its tall, rounded form and delicately-crafted leaves.

In fact, this is one of the first trees to change colors in the autumn months. While other trees are still green, the Ginkgo transitions to a fluorescent yellow. And it thrives all over the United States. It's especially perfect for urban areas since it won't be bothered by smog and other pollution.

Why is Better

At our nursery, we stock the male variety of the Ginkgo; this has a number of advantages over the female variety of this tree. Unlike the female Ginkgo, the male does not bear fruit, which falls to the ground and cause a sticky mess. And because it does not bear fruit, the male Ginkgo doesn't emit the bad smell commonly associated with some Ginkgos.

But the best part about growth at our nursery is that it means a head start for you and long-lived, healthy results in your own landscape. Adaptable to many different types of soil, our Ginkgo is also resistant to pests and will be drought resistant in maturity.

So, reap the rewards of our hard work at the nursery. Get your own Ginkgo Tree today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Select a spot that takes the mature height and width of your Ginkgo Tree into consideration. And give it an area surrounded by well-draining, preferably sandy soil, as well as ample sunlight.

When you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice as wide and a little deeper than the root ball. Soak the Ginkgo Tree in a bucket of water before planting. Once the roots are hydrated, place the tree in the hole. The surface of the root ball should be about 1 inch below ground level. Replace the soil you removed from the bottom of the hole, filling in around the root ball, then water the planting site.

2. Watering: Water your Ginkgo Tree regularly each week and more often as necessary during hot, dry periods.

3. Fertilizing: There is no need to add fertilizer as Ginkgo Trees will thrive with the nutrients available in the soil. If you do, you can fertilize with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in the spring.

4. Pruning: Pruning early to develop one central leader is highly recommended to ensure healthy, strong development.


Is the ginkgo tree poisonous?

All parts of the ginkgo contain toxins, but it’s consumed in some cultures as teas and other dishes with careful preparation. We don’t advise consuming any part of the ginkgo tree.

Where do ginkgo trees grow best?

Ginkgos thrive in areas with slightly acidic, well-draining soils and sun. They are thought to originate from China but will grow well along the East Coast in the U.S.

We'll See...

The tree arrived in a timely manner. When we planted our Ginko tree the burlap sack broke apart. Right now it looks like a stick in the ground. Haha! So we'll see how it does in the spring. Very hopeful!

Great tree

When I received this tree, it seemed in rough shape. We planted it anyway. I sent a photo to the company and asked if they thought it would make it. They ended up sending me a new tree. So now we have two ginkgo biloba trees and I can’t wait unti they grow!!

I love the Ginkgo trees. one arrived broken which was promptly replaced. Great customer service. This variety says that it grows up to zone 9, we are zone 9a so fingers crossed. I'm not aware of any Ginkgo trees in this area, I am so hoping they will be successful. Fascinating trees.

Ginkgo Love

Tree arrived in almost perfect condition. The burlap bag came apart immediately upon picking it up by the bag and made a mess. Otherwise, it’s been planted and getting watered weekly. � it grows well in Tahoe.

Great tree that arrived in great condition!

I ordered the 5-6 ft tall Ginkgo. It arrived within a few days and was packaged very well. I measured the tree and it stands just over 6 feet tall. It looks healthy and happy. I can't wait to see how it does in the coming years.
