With no living relatives, the ginkgo tree is certainly an unusual and special tree. Also called Ginkgo biloba, this deciduous tree develops green fan-shaped leaves in the spring before they turn a glorious golden yellow in the fall. A slow-growing tree, the ginkgo can reach 75 feet tall over time.

Originally from parts of Asia, the ginkgo tree is now grown throughout Europe and North America. Drought and pollution tolerant once established, this tree is ideal for streetscapes as well as growing as a specimen where it can be appreciated. This ginkgo is suitable for growing in USDA zones 4 to 9. 

Ginkgo Tree Care

With a final height of 75 feet and a large canopy, this tree should be planted somewhere it can grow unhindered, without affecting any overhead structures in the future. It performs best when grown in full sun in the North and partial shade in the South. The ginkgo tree tolerates most soil types, but prefers a well-drained, loamy soil. Water frequently after planting and for the first few growing seasons. Once established, it can cope with dry spells. You can support young trees by fertilizing them with a tree-specific feed in spring.

If you need to prune a ginkgo tree, the best time is in the winter when it is dormant. Dead, diseased and broken branches should be removed, but bear in mind that wounds can take a long time to heal. 

Ginkgo Tree Spacing

When mature, the ginkgo tree can reach a height of 80 feet and develop a canopy up to 60 feet across. If planting more than one ginkgo tree, you can plant them at a spacing of around 40 to 60 feet depending on the desired effect and use.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
