Description

Cold Hardy to Zone 3

Ginkgo 'Troll' Topiary is a deciduous conifer offering 3 seasons of interest. This artful form is created by grafting a Ginkgo 'Troll' atop a strong central "trunk," creating the appearance of a lollipop on a stick. The fanciful "tree" is 18 to 24 inches tall upon arrival and grows slowly, with the head maintaining its globe shape as it increases in size by 4 to 6 inches a year.

A Ginkgo biloba cultivar, commonly called maidenhair tree, Ginkgo 'Troll' is a dwarf variety with unique bi-lobed, fan-shaped leaves arranged in pairs. Offering long-lasting color, the leaves are rich green to blue green in season and turn brilliant bright yellow in fall. A highly versatile plant, Ginkgo 'Troll' Topiary adds a touch of whimsy to the garden, fitting nicely into small spaces or containers.

Tough, cold hardy, and almost indestructible, ginkgo prefers moist, sandy, well-drained soil but tolerates almost any soil, including compacted soils, like clay, as well as acidic and alkaline soils. The plant is disease resistant and bothered by few pests. Even deer leave it alone. For an ancient plant, ginkgo adapts well to modern air pollution, making the plant suitable for urban environments. Ginkgo are dioecious, having both male and female plants. Ginkgo 'Troll' Topiary is a male variety, so it neither produces fruit or seeds nor emits any odor.
