Maidenhair Tree: Ginkgo biloba - 20 Inch Pot - 10+ Foot Tall
A distinctive, deciduous tree with fan-shaped leaves that turn a brilliant yellow in the fall.
Caring for Ginkgo biloba, commonly known as the Ginkgo tree or Maidenhair tree, involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. Ginkgo biloba is a hardy and low-maintenance tree that thrives in full sun to partial shade. It can tolerate a wide range of soil types, as long as they are well-draining. Water the tree deeply during dry spells, especially in its early years of establishment, but avoid overwatering. Once established, Ginkgo biloba is drought-tolerant. Pruning is generally not necessary, but you can remove any dead or crossing branches to maintain the tree's shape. Ginkgo trees are resistant to pests and diseases. One thing to note is that female Ginkgo trees produce fruit with a foul odor when they mature, so if this is a concern, consider planting a male cultivar. With proper care, your Ginkgo biloba will provide you with unique fan-shaped leaves, vibrant autumn foliage, and a long lifespan, becoming a treasured addition to your landscape.
