Ginkgo biloba 'Troll' is an outstanding dwarf cultivar from the Netherlands. Its leaves are slightly embossed, a beautiful olive green in spring. The young shoots are thick and dense, it has a branching compact habit, a very striking ornamental plant. In the autumn it turns a brulliant gold. It only grows around 2.5 to 5 cm a year and will make a plant about 0.8 - 1.0 in height and spread in 10 years. 'Troll' can be top-worked at 1 or 1.5 m making an attractive mini standard which is ideal to grow as a container plant.
