Design IdeasConfidently 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.
