Ginkgo Biloba Princeton Sentry is an RHS AGM winning tall narrow deciduous tree with attractive fan-shaped leaves. Its straight, clear trunk and columnar growth habit make it a good choice in compact gardens.
Ginkgo Biloba is an ancient species of tree, classified as a conifer, that flourished with the dinosaurs and still grows wild in China. This cultivar Princeton Sentry is a variety of Ginkgo Biloba bred in 1967 in the USA by Princeton Nurseries for its narrow form and pretty fan-shaped two-lobed green leaves that have a yellow border and produce excellent autumn colour turning intense yellow.
Leaves grow in a cluster of 3-5 on upright branches that reach for the sky leaving a single clear trunk beneath. As it matures, the conical shape develops into a more rounded crown. This is a male tree, so it doesn’t produce unpleasant-smelling fruit and because it’s particularly pollution tolerant makes for an excellent street or front garden tree in urban areas.
