Maidenhair tree is probably one of the oldest species on Earth. It was here some 180 million years ago … obviously it was the time when the Dead Sea was still ill. Its extreme tolerance of various conditions made it survive to our time. One tree can live as long as 2000 years. And being so popular among growers and enthusiasts, it is no wonder that several varieties have been selected and hybridized to fulfil the dreams of plenty of ginkgo lovers.

Horizontalis is a small variety of maidenhair tree with almost flat canopy with deciduous, 4-7 cm wide, fan-shaped, divided, mid green leaves (botanically classified as needles), that change to fantastic shade of bright golden yellow in autumn. It grows relatively slowly making some 20-30 cm per year. Total height of this variety depends on the stem height it is grafted on. It usually does not exceed 3m but mature trees can be twice as wide. Yet, its spread is easily controlled by early spring pruning.

Maidenhair tree can withstand adverse conditions – heavy soil, air pollution, lack of moisture, extreme frosts. Once established it can take drought all summer long. For best results, however, grow it in medium fertile, well-drained, moist soil in full sun. Fully hardy to min. -34°C (USDA zone 4).
