'Magyar is a male form of Ginkgo which was discovered growing in front of Magyar Bank in New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA.

It has a narrow, upright pyramidal form with ascending branching that matures over time to as much as 60 feet tall and 30 feet wide. Green leaves turn a uniform and very showy golden yellow in autumn.

It is well-suited to urban planting as a street tree.
