Very little is known about this cultivar, some sources suggest that it is synonymous with Ginkgo biloba ‘Bunki’. Bunki was a Japanese era name after Meiō and before Eishō. This period spanned the years from February 1501 through February 1504. The reigning emperor was Go-Kashiwabara-tennō. However, this may be erroneous as one of the translations of bunki from Japanese is ‘forking’. Occasionally in the Ginkgo world a translation into the native language gives rise to a different name.
Description - Ginkgo biloba ‘Bullwinkle’ syn. Bunki’ The foliage has a slightly bluish tinge to the leaves, and they are slit several times with an edge that can look as if it has been frayed. Many nurserymen in the United States of America describe the leaves as a ‘rack of Moose antlers. It has a spreading and almost weeping habit; it is suggested that it will reach a height or 12m. The autumn colour is excellent.
