Rare Tree

The Ginkgo biloba 'Yellow Mellow', also known as the Variegated Japanese Nut Tree, is a rare tree that is not yet widely distributed.


The Leaf

The most striking feature of the Ginkgo biloba 'Yellow Mellow' is its leaf. The leaf colors range from yellow to green hues, giving the tree a distinctive appearance.

One leaf may be almost green with yellow tones, while another leaf may be entirely yellow with a single green streak.


Autumn Coloration

In autumn, the leaves transform from a bright green color to a beautiful mix of golden yellow and bright yellow. This color change is often very striking and draws much admiration. It is one of the most prominent features of this beautiful tree.



The Ginkgo biloba 'Yellow Mellow' prefers a somewhat drier location in the sun or partial shade.


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.
