Ginkgo biloba 'Scruffy Butterflies' (sex unknown) was selected by our good friend, Mr. Charles Hunter of Iowa in the United States of America. He selected as a seedling because of the profile of the leaves, which resembles that of the wings of an outstretched butterfly.


DescriptionGinkgo biloba 'Scruffy Butterflies' has deeply bilobed leaves that have further irregular dentations along the edge. As the leaves age they often have a yellow border, which gives rise to it name ‘Scruffy Butterflies’. The growth rate is 40 cm a year, producing a number of sporadic side branches, that weep gently giving it an open lax appearance. In 10years a plant would be expected to achieve a hight of 4 m – 5 m with a spread of 3 m.  The overall height can only be estimated at in excess of 20 m.
