Ginkgo biloba - Foliage

Ginkgo biloba

Maidenhair Tree

Common Name: Maidenhair treeLatin Name: Ginkgo bilobaSoil: Any well-drained soilPosition: Full sunHardiness: Fully hardyFlowering period: SpringFlowering colour: Yellow catkins when mature Eventual height/spread: 15m/8mThe Ginkgo biloba is a Chinese native which dates back to over 200 million years ago which dates them back to a time before even dinosaurs roamed the plant. This tree is a deciduous conifer, which is an attribute to a very small number of trees. This tree boasts attractive two-lobed, fan-shaped leaves which are known for their exceptionally bright gold autumn colour. Male specimens have yellow catkins in spring, whereas the females have fruit. This majestic tree can be planted in isolation as a garden focal point; the Maidenhair also works as a companion to a Red Maple, as the burning autumn colours contrast beautifully. This tree will eventually become very tall, so ensure you plant it in a large garden away from any buildings. This hardy tree was just 2km away from the Hiroshima atomic bomb blast in 1945 and survived the attack; the affected trees are still growing to this day! Maidenhair trees are extremely long lived with the oldest recorded individuals being 3,500 years old! They have been widely used in Chinese and now in western medicine. The leaves are used in herbal remedies to treat Alzheimer's, Dementia and other diseases and cognitive ailments.

Prunus Amanogawa - Japanese Flowering Cherry Tree

Prunus Amanogawa

Japanese Flowering Cherry Tree

Prunus Amanogawa is a narrow and columnar Japanese cherry tree which is perfect for a garden with restricted space. It features dense clusters of fragrant pink flowers and eye-catching foliage. This is also a great choice for vivid autumn colour. The Amanogawa is a compact tree with a very upright habit and densely-packed branches, making it the perfect choice for the smaller garden. In spring, an abundance of deep pink semi-double flowers appear in clusters: the flowers are sweetly scented and smell of almonds, which makes this tree a delightful addition to a sensory garden. The spring flowers are accompanied by green-bronze leaves, and the leaves mature to a brighter green come summer. The leaves are ovate in shape and are serrated at the edge. A final burst of life comes in autumn when the foliage takes on a stunning array of autumnal colours: the leaves turn to shades of burnt orange, deep red and crisp yellow before falling. The upright shape of the Amanogawa makes it ideal for planting as a structural tree and it works well when planted alongside another upright tree like Sorbus Autumn Spire. The name 'Amanogawa' means 'River of the sky' in Japanese, and this Japanese native was originally found planted along the Arakawa River in Japan. This delightful tree was brought to the UK in the early 20th century, and it is now one of our most popular trees here at Mail Order Trees.

Quercus Green Pillar - Autumn Foliage

Quercus palustris Green Pillar

Pin Oak Tree

Common Name: Pin OakLatin Name: Quercus palustris 'Green Pillar'Soil: Well drained, moist or dry. Acidic or neutral.Position: Full sunFlowering period/colour: April, green, insignificant.Hardiness: Fully hardyHeight and spread in 20 years: 15m/4mSpecial features: Columnal form, deep green leaves, vibrant red autumn colour.Quercus palustris 'Green Pillar' has a tall columnar or fastigiate shape brought about by vertical growth of its branches. This is a great architectural asset in certain garden design situations, particularly as a screen or visual barrier, or as a single specimen plant.This variety thrives in full sun and dry soil, and so makes an ideal shade tree. It can be particularly useful as a street tree providing a visually attractive avenue, as well as shade for pedestrians. The tree is tall and very slim in its youth and spreads a little more in later years, with a slightly different visual effect.The leaves of this species are dark green in summer, and bright, vibrant red in autumn. This ensures lasting appeal though the seasons. The tree is deciduous, and so drops its leaves in winter. The liberated winter structure allows bright light through the canopy, which is a huge advantage for pedestrians or garden users. This tree has a tendency to retain just a few leaves in winter, creating a specific visual effect, which is particularly valued by some. This should be considered when making a choice of variety.Quercus palustris 'Green Pillar' is moderately fast growing, reaching about 15m tall and 4 metres wide, and prefers acid or neutral soils. Chlorosis occurs in the leaves in alkaline soil due to iron deficiency. This species is fully hardy in the UK.
