The 'Sky Tower' Ginkgo is a popular tree for tight spaces where upright/tight growth is desirable. Named because they grow upward in a tight column, this ginkgo will grow about 6-8 ft. wide and around 20 ft. tall. If you've never seen a ginkgo leaf, they are one of the most beautiful leaves of any tree. They will add an exotic appeal to any garden or yard. Ginkgo trees grow a uniform light green in the spring and darken up slightly in the summer. In the fall ginkgo trees have consistent golden leaves. The color is outstanding and can rival any other tree for fall beauty. Combine these with red maples, dogwoods, or a purple leave cherry for an amazing display.
All 'Sky Tower' Ginkgo Trees are of a male selection - meaning they will not produce fruit. These trees are very hardy and have withstood the test of time. The ginkgo is literally 270 million years old, making it one of the most ancient and successful trees. When caring for these trees we recommend maintaining the usual mulch ring to protect the tree from elements, competing plants, and yard equipment for the first few years. Slow release fertilizer can be applied (per directions on the bag) in the early fall to give the tree a boost that will carry through to spring. See our care tab below for more details.

General care for any tree or shrub is easy, but like any living thing will require your attention. Please educate yourself and follow these simple rules.
The first tree I purchased was damaged in UPS shipment. I contacted Travis and he immediately contacted UPS. My replacement tree was reserved for shipment within one day!. The second tree arrived in perfect condition. It is a really nice tree and almost four feet high already! I will always buy all my trees and supplies from New Blooms Nursery from now on!
Trees arrived well packaged and appeared unscathed by the shipping process. They have been planted and watered and fingers crossed will break dormancy soon with the onset of spring.
although expensive, they were well-packaged and arrived intact with a nice root ball.
Shipment of 2 sky tower trees came quickly, expertly packaged and the dormant trees have now sprouted healthy new leaves in their new home. Followed easy mulching and fertilizing instructions and very satisfied with my purchase!
Love the plants I’ve purchased at New Blooms, and the advise and feedback from Travis. Looking forward to my Fall order!
