Gardeners who plant Gingko trees will be rewarded with a lifetime of glorious golden-yellow autumn color. Gingko is an ancient member of the plant world, having been in existence for at least 100 million years. Their lobed fan-shaped leaves emerge bright green in spring, but later they take on a stunning bright golden hue that is a showstopper in the fall landscape. Choosing a Gingko tree is a long-term decision as it will become a major element of your garden design. It will grow 30-50 feet tall by 25-35 feet wide, adding about 1-2 feet of growth annually. A simple green ground cover is all a Gingko needs for a plant partner. If you plant Mondo grass or low growing blue rug juniper in a bed surrounding a Gingko tree, you will be in awe of the yellow autumn leaves drifting gently down to mingle with the green ground cover. Beyond that, Ginkgo pair beautifully with any conifer. Gingko is easy to grow in sunny, well-drained, evenly moist soil and they are hardy in zones 3-8. Supplemental watering in hot weather is beneficial.
