Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Bledsoe On Jan 18, 2009, Bledsoe from Fort Collins, CO wrote:

This plant is unique to my area. I love the foliage on this tree that alone is enough to make anyone want a tree on there property. The only downside is in the 3 years I have had this tree I have yet to see the fall color because it usually gets to cold before it starts to change. If hit by a hard freeze usually 25 or 26 degrees that leaves cascade to the ground in nearly one day.

This quickly became what may be the most popular clone of Ginkgo biloba. This is due to its fastest growth of any selection, (Happy nurserymen and plant farms) consistent leaf shape, and rich golden-yellow fall color. Extremely adaptable to virtually any soil or aspect. (Actually, soil adaptability is due to rootstock, which is invariably a random seedling, which are extremely adaptable nonetheless)

This cultivar cannot be reproduced from seed, (Obviously, as it is a male clone) only grafting or stem-cuttings.
