Autumn Gold Ginko
Ginko biloba ‘Autumn Gold’
A superior tree. It can be expected to perform very well in Keizer.
This male cultivar of Ginkgo is practically pestfree, resistant to storm damage, and casts dense shade. It makes a durable street tree where there is enough overhead space to accommodate the large size.
The shape is often irregular with a large branch or two seemingly forming its own tree on the trunk. Ginkgo tolerates most soil, including compacted, and alkaline. The tree is easily transplanted and has a vivid yellow fall color which is second to none in brilliance, even in the south. However, leaves fall quickly and the fall color show is short. Unlike the species, the tree does not set fruit.
