Ginkgo biloba 'Pendula'

Many selections bearing the "Pendula" name are anything but a weeping form.

[New Ornamentals Society]
Stiffly weeping forming inverted umbrella over time. Some branches may be irregular and horizontal or nodding at best. It is more of a curiosity than a truly beautiful plant in most cases.

It is unclear if our modern clones are same as the original.

Specimen at Arboretum Trompenburg This specimen is most likely grafted on top of a standard.
