Ginkgo biloba 'Autumn Gold' (Maidenhair Tree) Details

“Autumn Gold” is a variety of Ginkgo grown for its impressive and colourful foliage. It produces distinctive, fan-shaped, rich green leaves which turn bright yellow in autumn before falling. When they do drop, they form a golden carpet around the tree. Ginkgos grow as separate male and female trees and nurseries typically only sell male trees because female trees produce seeds encased in a fleshy covering which tends to be messy and emit a foul odour. It typically grows to 12 m tall and 7 m wide with an upright, rounded habit. Best results with this tree are achieved when it is grown in full sun on a well-drained site though it will tolerate frost, cool climates, heavy soils, moderate wind, and urban pollution. “Autumn Gold” is commonly used in avenue plantings, grown as a specimen, included in a mixed planting, or planted around water features such as ponds and streams.
