Ginkgo biloba 'Markiken' is a male form, discovered by Piet Vergeld in Lottum in the Netherlands in 1995 and introduced into the trade by David Bomer. The foliage appears rounded and cupped and the plant is densly clothed. This is an outstanding dwarf cultivar with a broad spreading compact habit. A mature plant will be in the regions of 1 m high with a spread of 2.5 m. This plant is often top worked to produce neat bushy standards, which are ideal for growing in containers.
