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 fulfill the dreams of plenty of ginkgo lovers.

Fastigiata Blagon is a French variety of maidenhair tree with narrowly conical or almost columnar growth. It bears 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 is often pruned or sheared to achieve a more compact shape and denser habit which will help the tree produce a breathtaking show in autumn.

It grows relatively slowly with 30-40 cm per year. Mature size is expected to exceed 10m but the width is only between 2 and 3m. 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 about -40°C (USDA zone 3).
