New Ginkgo Tree

This is the view outside our front window right now. I finally decided on the Ginkgo variety 'Princeton Sentry', which grows in an upright, conical habit. I think it provides some height and adds more definition to the area.

It just started changing color a few days ago and did it all at once, overnight it seems.

Notice the huge maple on the right across the street - it is absolutely stunning right now especially when the late evening sun hits it. It absolutely glows.

  1. Yes, your new Ginko fits in perfectly.

  2. A fabulous new addition! Happy new tree to you!

  3. What a fantastic view and congrats on your new addition. I love the shape of Ginkgo leaves, and "upright, conical habit" is so perfect for a smaller gardens. Wonderful choice.

  4. I love the colour changes in the trees. You are lucky to have a neighbor with a maple. Wish I had one! Groetjes,

  5. Excellent choice. They really light up on a sunny autumn day. That maple across the street will have some serious competition.
