Ginkgo biloba 'Anny's Dwarf' is a male form (despite the name) originating from the Netherlands. Its discovery is attributed to Andre van Nijnatten from the Netherlands in 1990. All plants which are introduced by him are prefixed with ‘Anny’.

Matures to a small to medium densely branched shrub. This cultivar is very well suited for container growing. Note: when container grown, the overall height and spread can be reduced by up to fifty percent.


Ginkgo biloba ‘Anny’s Dwarf’ is particularly noticeable due to its smaller 4cm - 6cm deeply incised leaves (which have a long petiole) and the overall compact, rounded growth. An annual growth rate of approximately 30cm can be expected. Many sources suggest that it will only grow 1.5m to 1.8m in height and spread, but I think it is more realistic to expect approximately 3m.
