The 'California Sunset' Ginkgo features leaves that emerge creamy yellow maturing to dark green with creamy yellow sun-like rays through the entire leaf. The fan-shaped leaf is longer and more narrow than standard Ginkgo. We've been growing this one now for several years and have seen no reversion. Some leaves might remain more creamy yellow as they were in spring. To prevent the variegated leaves from discoloring, plant this one in morning sun with shade or filtered sun in the afternoon. Evening sun is okay, but avoid direct afternoon sun. Too much shade though and leaves may be more green. As with other Ginkgo, fall brings the brilliant yellow leaf color. We nor anyone else knows what the ultimate size of this one will be. With a growth rate of 6 to 10 inches per year and an upright habit, we think it might reach 10 feet in 10 years and ultimately 15 feet or more in height and maybe 6 to 8 feet wide. This would make it a good selection for small to medium size garden spaces and containers. Get all the details below!
