Weeping Ginkgo | Ginkgo biloba 'pendula'
Pendula' is a slow growing somewhat weeping form. This is a male clone and will not produce fruit. It has a broad spreading habit that is rather stiffly downward trending, producing an umbrella like shape. 'Pendula' matures to a small tree about about 8 feet tall to 10 feet wide. This tree makes an interesting accent or unusual feature in a garden. The Ginkgo is an ancient deciduous conifer and evidence has been found which shows this tree coexisted with the dinosaurs. Ginkgo is sometimes called the maidenhair tree due to its beautiful fan shaped leaves that resemble a maidenhair fern frond. It is one of the most pollution-tolerant trees and works well in the city. Insignificant green flowers appear in the spring. Ginkgo has wonderful yellow fall color. It produces stout spurs along the branches; these spurs and the stiff branches give the Ginkgo a formal, stiff, spiky appearance in winter. Golden yellow fall color is outstanding.
