Ginkgo biloba 'Tremonia' is a female, German selection which is wonderfully columnar but differs from the other fastigate forms due to its heavily textured, blue-green foliage. This tree makes a very narrow specimen, ideal for planting in groups or for use as a specimen in a small garden where it takes up very little room.
- Position: Full sun/part shade
- Soil: All soil types except waterlogged
- Eventual Size: 5-6 metres
- Habit: Fastigate, narrow
- Foliage: Lovely, narrow leaf, distinct shape
- Common Names: Maindenhair Tree 'Tremonia'
All forms of Ginkgo biloba are extremely hardy and tolerant of a wide range of conditions. If planting in the ground we recommend using good planting compost with root grow and keeping the soil moist but not waterlogged for the first 6 months. Thereafter an annual top dressing with a good fertilizer is beneficial but not essential. Pruning is not necessary except when shaping is required and this should take place in the dormant period.
If planting in a container, use ericaceous compost mixed with 10% John Innes no. 3 added and feed through the growing period with a good general fertiliser - we use organic seaweed extract. If possible, try to avoid the pot freezing for prolonged periods in the winter months. Re-pot every 2-3 years into the next sized container.
