Growth Habit

The Ginkgo biloba 'Blagon,' also known as the Columnar Japanese Walnut or Chinese Temple Tree, is the narrow-growing variant of the Japanese walnut.

The Ginkgo biloba 'Blagon' grows with upright branches, resulting in a beautiful columnar growth habit.


Leaf Color

The characteristic leaves of Ginkgo biloba 'Blagon' are the same as those of the common Japanese walnut. They are green in color and arranged in groups of 3 to 5 leaves.


Autumn Coloring

In the fall, the leaves of Ginkgo biloba 'Blagon' turn deep golden-yellow, creating a stunning autumn spectacle.


Versatile Application

Due to its columnar growth habit, Ginkgo biloba 'Blagon' can be applied in almost any garden. It is also frequently planted in narrow streets due to its limited space requirements.



Ginkgo biloba 'Blagon' thrives on almost any soil type, provided it is sufficiently well-draining.



Pruning is not necessary for this Columnar Japanese Walnut due to its compact growth. Only apply pruning for shaping if desired.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
