A Dwarf Ginkgo Just Two Feet High after 10 Years!
Spectacular Golden Fall color!
This male cultivar has no messy fruits!
Extremely dwarf and slow-growing, this splendid male Ginkgo is a mutation discovered in Holland in 1995. Ideal for bonsai, containers, and small-space gardens, its exquisite fan-shaped foliage is in proportion to its overall size.
Delightfully curled and cupped new foliage of celery green turns bright yellow before dropping in autumn. These leaves are unlike any other in the garden, and when they fall they create a bright pool of color on the garden or patio floor, standing out brilliantly!
After several decades' growth 'Mariken' may reach 3 to 5 feet high; after 10 years it will have achieved only about 2 feet in height and 2 feet in width. Very rare and choice! Zones 4-8
Also known as the "Maidenhair Tree", purported to be the oldest tree species on the planet today. Used as shade trees and also in Bonsai creation ,Ginkgo Nuts are an Asian delicacy , and the leaves are used to increase bloodflow to the brain and as an aid to memory related disorders.
