Ginkgo biloba ‘Blagon’ Ginkgo

Ginkgo

Description: ‘Blagon' is a deciduous, columnar tree maintaining a narrow crown when mature. The interesting leaves are apple green in summer, turning a lovely butter yellow in autumn, which create a pretty carpet of gold on the ground as they fall. This is a male form, so it will not produce any fruits. It makes a striking screen or avenue of trees when planted closely together. Alternatively, its slow growth habit even makes it suitable for a large container.

History: Developed from a chance seedling, Derly Obtentions, Authevernes, France, 1999.

Ginkgo Growing Tips: Grow in well-drained soil with a full sun position.

Height and Spread (after 20 years): 8m x 2m
