Its discovery is attributed to Andre van Nijnatten from the Netherlands in 1990. All plants which are introduced by him are prefixed with ‘Anny’.

Ginkgo biloba ‘Anny’s Dwarf’ - The leaves have multiple lobes and the variegation is quite subtle, showing as lighter stripes. It should be noted that for the striations to be visible it needs to be grown in full sun, in partial shade, they are not so visible and as such will be disappointing.
An annual growth rate of approximately 30cm - 45cm can be expected. This plant is more vigorous than Ginkgo biloba ‘Anny’s Dwarf’, it should eventually reach a height of approximately 5m, with a spread of 3m - 4m.
