|Design Ideas||Confidently plant this newer fruitless Ginkgo as a street or lawn tree. Tuck away in the far back corner of your yard, where its fall color will crisply stand out and blanket the ground with a bright yellow carpet. Due to its slow-growing and upright habit, don't count this attractive accent tree to provide substantial shade until the canopy broadens with advanced age.|
|Companion Plants||Beech (Fagus); Lilac (Syringa); Weigela (Weigela); Davidia (Dove Tree); Daylily (Hemerocallis)|
|Care||Best with slightly sandy, well-drained soil; adapts to most soil types. Water deeply and regularly during the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
