Ginkgo biloba 'Beijing Gold'

An interesting new form with leaves that emerge primrose-yellow in spring and slowly become darker over the season as they build chlorophyll, before turning a rich yellow in autumn. Like some other yellow leaved plants, this would be best placed in a semi-shaded position to avoid scorch to the new foliage. Slow growing, this is a shrubby form of the species.

Ginkgo biloba 'Fairmount' (new)

Selected in Philadelphia for its narrow upright columnar form, this slowly makes a medium to large tree with splendid golden yellow autumn colour. A male clone, this doesn't drop smelly fruit. For almost any soil or site, Ginkgos are very tough - they've had to be to survive the last 300 million years!

Ginkgo biloba 'Tubifolia' (new)

A fairly dwarf form for many years, with the most unusual and ornamental foliage when young; the edges being rolled inward; imagine an ice-cream cornet without the ice-cream. As the tree gets older leaves become flatter and more laciniate (dissected) than the norm. Very good golden yellow autumn colour. Reaches only about 6m after many decades.

Gymnocladus chinensis

Very new into cultivation in the UK and a particularly interesting introduction. Closely related to the American G. dioicus, the Kentucky Coffee Tree, this has altogether more tropical looking foliage, resembling a species of Albizia. The bipinnate leaves flush purple and retain that colour on the leaflet reverse. Very hardy, this will enjoy warmth in summer.

Gymnocladus dioica

Gymnocladus dioica

The 'Kentucky Coffee Tree' is only rarely seen in this country, which is a shame as the huge but very graceful, bi-pinnate leaves are quite a sight. Steadily makes a deciduous tree of small to medium size with foliage pink tinged in spring and turning a good yellow in autumn. Twigs conspicuously palest grey in winter. Very hardy though grows best in warm summer areas.
