(Known in China as ‘Feiermengte’). This plant was grafted at The Saratoga Horticultural Foundation, Saratoga, California, U.S.A. from material taken from a tree planted in 1876 outside The Horticultural Hall in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, U.S.A.


Description - Ginkgo biloba  ‘Fairmount' (sometimes called 'Fairmont', which is a misspelling) is a male tree. The leaves usually have a deep central slit. Young trees have a horizontal branching habit, but eventually produce an upright pyramidal crown, which can be quite dense. A mature tree is expected to reach a hight of 20 - 25 m with a spread of 9 m. This cultivar is not known for good autumn colour.
