Ginkgo biloba 'Layin Low' origibates from the U.S.A. it is a sport of Ginkgo biloba 'Horizontalis' which naturally only produces lateral side branches. (Our specimens are trained up a cane until they are 1 m high, then allowed to grow naturally). In time the plat will form a low growing mound. any shoots that show a tendancy to grow upright should be removed. The foliage is varieable and truns a rich yellow in the autumn.
