This petite tree is grown for its unusual fan-shaped leaves and small size. It has a slightly weeping form and works well when grafted high. It will only be about 2 feet tall and 1 to 5 feet wide in 10 years, eventually growing larger. The fan-shaped leaves have almost parallel veins, and their bright green color changes to a uniform golden yellow in the fall. This variety is male and will not produce any fruit.
Ginkos grow best in full sun but appreciate some shelter from the afternoon sun and high winds in Kansas. They are low maintenance and tolerate a wide variety of soils and air quality. They work well as a small accent tree.
