Quick Overview

Magyar Ginkgo - Ginkgo biloba 'Magyar'

A true 150 million year old relic with uniquely fan-shaped leaves and an absolutely beautiful form and habit of growth, golden fall color; this is a male plant, so it produces none of the foul-smelling fruit; choose male plants for landscape use


Height: 50 feet

Spread: 25 feet

Sunlight:  full sun 

Hardiness Zone: 4a

Other Names: Maidenhair Tree

Ornamental Features:

Magyar Ginkgo has emerald green foliage throughout the season. The fan-shaped leaves turn an outstanding yellow in the fall. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant. The furrowed gray bark is not particularly outstanding.

Landscape Attributes:

Magyar Ginkgo is an open deciduous tree with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Magyar Ginkgo is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Shade
  • Vertical Accent
  • Accent

Plant Characteristics:

Magyar Ginkgo will grow to be about 50 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 25 feet. It has a high canopy with a typical clearance of 5 feet from the ground, and should not be planted underneath power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live to a ripe old age of 150 years or more; think of this as a heritage tree for future generations!

This tree should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder zones.

This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
