Ginkgo Biloba Pyramidalis is a deciduous pyramid-shaped tree with fan-shaped leaves on long stalks. It’s an excellent specimen tree in a border or a compact urban garden due to its pollution tolerant nature.
Ginkgo Biloba (maidenhair tree) is an ancient species of conifer tree that grew alongside dinosaurs and is preserved in the fossil record. It’s truly prehistoric and once grew in a variety of areas, but today it only grows wild in China.
Ginkgo Biloba Pyramidalis, also known as Maidenhair Tree Pyramidalis, is a cultivar of Ginkgo bred in 1969 in America to form a pyramidal crown on a tall, narrow trunk without the loss of its distinctive green foliage with a warm yellow edge. Its leaves form on long stalks from its upright branches and mature to a bright, intense yellow for autumn. The leaves fall quickly, creating a carpet of gold around its base.
This is a male selection, so it won’t bear sticky unpleasant-smelling flowers and fruits in summer. It’s a great choice for compact spaces and front gardens where every inch counts.
Height And Spread of Ginkgo Biloba Pyramidalis Maidenhair Tree Pyramidalis is slow-growing, tall, and narrow. It reaches a height of 12 metres and spreads across 8 metres at the base of the crown. The tip of the crown is narrower, forming its pyramidal shape.
How Hardy Is Ginkgo Biloba Pyramidalis Ginkgo Biloba trees are very hardy if the roots are well-drained. Maidenhair Tree Pyramidalis is also tolerant of drought once established, pollution, and salt sprays.
How To Use Ginkgo Biloba Pyramidalis This is a beautiful specimen tree that takes up little width and provides pretty yellow-green shades for a good part of the year. Its coastal spray and pollution tolerant nature make it suitable for coastal or urban areas including front gardens, and because it’s so low maintenance, naturally growing in a pyramid, it’s beneficial to busy gardeners too.
How To Care For Ginkgo Biloba Pyramidalis Maidenhair Tree Pyramidalis is very low maintenance. Pruning isn’t required because it naturally grows in a pyramid, but you can remove dead or crossed branches in the dormant winter season. Choose a sheltered or exposed well-drained spot in full sun for the brightest colours and water it well until established because the biggest killer of young trees is lack of water.
Ginkgo will tolerate the majority of soils that are free-draining, but a thick layer of organic mulch in spring traps moisture and provides nutrients for the growing season.
